ISLAMABAD: The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has issued a list of 778 goods on which manufacturers of oil and ghee and steel melters/rerolling mills cannot claim input tax adjustment in their monthly sales tax return.

In this connection, the FBR has issued Sales Tax General Order (STGO) 12 of 2022 on the input tax adjustment to manufacturers of oil and ghee and steel sector.

From April 1, 2022, the manufacturers of oil and ghee would not be entitled to claim input tax adjustment on 348 items. However, the steel melters and re-rollers would not be able to claim input tax adjustment on 430 items.

Sector experts told Business Recorder that the denial of input tax adjustment on 778 items would have serious consequences for the manufacturers of oil and ghee and steel sector. This restriction of disallowing input tax adjustment would increase the cost of these sectors.

Waiver of tax relief: FBR yet to begin refund payments to various sectors

In case of manufacturers of oil and ghee, the disallowance of input tax adjustment covers items such as bones and horn-cores; pepper of the genus piper dried or crushed; wheat or meslin flour; flour, meal, and flakes of potatoes; wheat gluten whether or not dried; cane sugar; sugars, including lactose, maltose, glucose; molasses; sauces and preparations therefor; mineral waters; natural water; oil-cake and other solid residues; sunflower oil cake; rape or colza seed oil cake and other items specified.

The FBR has issued a separate list of 430 items for the steel sector on which the input tax adjustment cannot be claimed.

According to the FBR, the Sales Tax Act, 1990 (Act) mandates a taxpayer registered with the FBR to claim input tax credit on import/purchases from registered suppliers only. The section 8(1)(a) of the Act restricts the adjustment of input on goods or services used or to be used for any purpose other than for taxable supplies made or to be made.

Similarly, Section 8(1)(f) and (i) of the Act provide that tax credit shall not be admissible on the goods or services not related to the taxable supplies made by the taxpayer. This essentially being a self-assessment based system warrants high standards of responsibility and integrity on part of the UST filers.

VAT - PART 1 There is a basic flaw in Pakistani VAT schemes.Let us say that there are 2 Thieves - (Thief 1 ) and (Thief 2) Thief 1 sells 100000 tons of steel to Thief 2, at 500 USD a ton- to be paid for in 30 days. In reality,there is NO SALE and (Thief 1 ) has sold the steel, in the black market. Thief 2 exports the steel to someone in Frankfurt at 600 USD a ton - but in reality, THERE IS NO EXPORT (it is a paper transaction by bribing customs or exporting something less or something ELSE). Now Thief 2 claims VAT REFUND ON THE EXPORT A simple flaw in the Pakistani VAT law and process is that –Thief 2 should NOT be allowed to export UNTIL there is a ELECTRONIC PROOF OF VAT PAID ON PURCHASE OF STEEL TO THIEF 1 2ndly,if the VAT on sale of steel by Thief 1 is not COLLECTED by Thief 1 in 45 days, the STEEL SHOULD BE RETURNED OR VAT PAID - and the BURDEN has to be on Thief 1.dindooohindoo

VAT - Part 2 Thirdly, NO VAT REFUND CLAIM BY THIEF 2, IS TO BE ,EVEN ADMITTED ,BY THE STATE - UNLESS THERE IS A E-TRAIL OF VAT CREDIT BY THIEF 2 TO THIEF 1 AND THAT THIEF 1,HAS PAID THE VAT (on domestic sale) to the STATE Lastly,the VAT REFUND should be PAID TO THIEF 2 ONLY AFTER THE AUDIT OF THE VAT TAX PAID FROM THIEF 2 TO THIEF 1 AND FROM THIEF 1 TO THE STATE (AS THE VAT SOFTWARE CAN BE HACKED/COMPROMISED TO MAKE A CREDIT TO PARTY A - TO BE PUT INTO THE ACCOUNT OF THIEF 1 ) If all the above are done - NO VAT EXPORT SCAM CAN TAKE PLACE ! However, black marketing of products will NOT stop.dindooohindoo
