FBR To Launch Single Sales Tax Portal to Facilitate Taxpayers

The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has developed a single sales tax portal to facilitate taxpayers and ensure ease of doing business (EoDB), which is the outcome of various rounds of negotiations between FBR and provincial revenue authorities.

FBR has already offered this portal to provincial revenue authorities in order to facilitate taxpayers through one-link facility. The portal is in the final stages of testing and is likely to be launched by the last week of October, the federal tax agency announced on Thursday.

It is pertinent to mention that till now, sales tax registered persons had to file their monthly returns separately to every tax jurisdiction where they conducted business, such as FBR, Sindh Revenue Board (SRA), Punjab Revenue Authority (PRA), Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Revenue Authority (KPRA) and Balochistan Revenue Authority (BRA).

Some of the taxpayers had to file returns with revenue authorities of Azad Jammu & Kashmir (AJ&K) and Gilgit Baltistan (GB). This was a cumbersome task, which often led to complications and disputes over jurisdiction.
