The Punjab government has very sincerely and enthusiastically laid down the foundation of PRA. The government has a complete future vision to steer PRA into a sustainable modern and progressive revenue organization. PRA has taken start with the collection and enforcement of sales tax on services.
It will undertake collection of other provincial taxes as and when responsibility to that effect is assigned by the Punjab government. It is hoped that under the reformed tax administration environment, PRA will make maximum contribution towards the provincial resource mobilization.
