Retailers Slam FBR for Sealing Premises

Retailers slammed the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) decision allowing field officers powers to seal an integrated retailer’s premises without even a show-cause notice.

The FBR gave another notification on the 16th of February, which permits FBR field officials to seal an integrated retailer’s premises without even a show-cause notice. According to section 150ZEO according to SRO 252/2022, FBR field officials currently reserve the option to seal an integrated retailer’s premises at their caution.

Chainstore Association of Pakistan (CAP) Chairman Tariq Mehboob on Thursday while conversing with The News said that as opposed to settling the specialized and functional issues looked by the POS integrated retailers, FBR approved its field officials to seal integrated retailers, “while couldn’t be de-sealed without paying fines”. Huge departmental stores issue a great many solicitations while others issue hundreds, however of those, regardless of whether three to five solicitations get checked because of specialized issues, the premises could be sealed without the retailer getting an opportunity to clarify the inconsistency. “Such cruel measures would severely influence the endeavors towards establishing a favorable business climate and could exasperate the generally undeniable degree of seen badgering of existing citizens,” he referenced.

As of now, because of framework misfires or different blunders, the clients once in a while face issues in getting their receipt confirmed from the FBR framework when they submit in the Tax Assan App.

Assuming the receipt was unconfirmed, the clients have a choice to report it. When the client reports it or during a shop visit of an FBR official, the receipt falls in the class of unconfirmed, the FBR officials can seal the business premises right away.
