ISLAMABAD: The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has linked the renewal of the customs agent licenses with the key performance indicators (KPI) defined by the Board to ascertain their performance.

The FBR has issued SRO431(I)/2022 here on Friday to issue draft amendments in the Customs Rules, 2001.

Under the amended rules, the “KPI” means key performance indicators, defined by the FBR to ascertain the performance of the licensee.

According to the FBR’s revised eligibility criteria to file application seeking license for customs agents, a candidate is eligible to file application with the licensing authority, if he has adequate knowledge of computer to handle the goods declaration (GD) in PRAL or Customs Computerized System (CCS) etc.

He should not be convicted by any court of law and fulfill other conditions specified in the law.

The applicant shall provide sales tax registration certificate prior to issuance of license or shall upload into the system against a checkbox.

A smart card shall be issued in substitution of existing license booklet, having all the requisite information including license holder name; license type partnership, proprietorship or AOP; issuance and expiry date; ID card number; and NTN of the licensee.
