About Us :
The provincial tax systems in Pakistan are more or less based upon a colonial legacy. The dawn of 21st century has seen a visible change in the governance patterns at national as well as at sub-national levels especially in the developing countries.
Pakistan too has very sincerely joined the race of government reforms on multi-institutional fronts. Reforms in tax regimes have been initiated as an important component of overall fisco-economic reforms.
In this regard, Pakistan has also suitably modified its fiscal federalism. Not only public service responsibilities of the Provincial governments have been expanded but also several prudent opportunities have been created for the Provinces to mobilize their own resources
1. Whether every service provider is liable to be registered?
Every person who is engaged in providing taxable services is liable to be registered with PRA. No exemption threshold is applicable in case of services taxable under the Punjab Sales Tax on Services Act, 2012.
The Government of Punjab will however, consider to prescribe suitable exemption threshold in case of services provided by hotels in terms of sub-section (3) of section 10 of the said Act.
2. What is effective date of enforcement of the Punjab Sales Tax Act 2012?
The effective date of enforcement of the Punjab Sales Tax on Services Act, 2012 is the 1st day of July, 2012.
3. How and where to make tax payment?
Sales tax shall be payable through filing of prescribed return in the designated branches of National Bank of Pakistan. The forms of sales tax return along with annexures and tax payment challan have been prescribed under the Punjab Sales Tax on Services (Filing of Returns) Rules, 2012.
These forms can be downloaded from PRA’s website. Facilitation desks of Pakistan Revenue Automation Limited (PRAL) are available in the designated bank branches to guide and assist the taxpayers for filing of their returns and making payment of their due tax amounts in the bank.
The taxpayers may also file their returns and make tax payments through the notified e-intermediaries as per list available on PRA’s website.
4. What is the exemption threshold, if any?
No exemption threshold is applicable in case of services taxable under the Punjab Sales Tax on services Act, 2012.
