I would like to inform that a delegation of Sialkot Chamber met the Chief Commissioner, Inland Revenue, Regional Tax Office Sialkot, yesterday in order to discuss problems of exporters, who have not yet deposited outstanding 1% Withholding Sales Tax liability for the period from July 2013 to June 2016. We are pleased to inform that the Chief Commissioner has assured to extend maximum relief to all those exporters who would deposit their outstanding 1% Withholding Sales Tax liability under SRO 897(I)/2013 until December 30, 2017.
In view of above, the exporters who have not yet deposited their outstanding 1% Withholding Sales Tax Liability for the subject period, are advised in their own interest to immediately act and deposit their dues before December 30, 2017. Please be informed that this would be the last chance to avail any relief in respect of recovery of non-deducted and non-deposited Withholding Sales Tax by the Tax Department.
Meanwhile, if you face any difficulty in seeking relief in the matter, you are advised to inform the Chamber in writing, so that the matter could be taken up with the Tax Department accordingly.
With best regards,
ZAHID LATIF MALIK
The Sialkot Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
