The federal government on Wednesday appointed Asim Ahmad, a BS-21 officer of the Inland Revenue Service (IRS), as the new chairman of the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR), just ahead of the federal budget 2022-23 announcement.

“With the approval of the Federal Government, Mr. Asim Ahmad, a BS-21 officer of Inland Revenue Service (IRS), is appointed as Chairman, Federal Board of Revenue under Section 10 of the Civil Servants Act, 1973, with immediate effect and until further orders,” a notification issued by the Establishment Division read.

Meanwhile, ex-FBR chairman Dr Muhammad Ashfaq Ahmad has been transferred and reverted to FBR, with immediate effect. Ahmad has also been relieved of the additional charge of the post of Secretary, Revenue Division.

Earlier, Business Recorder, citing government sources, reported that the federal cabinet was likely to consider the appointment of new Chairman FBR today.

“Yes, I have heard that a summary will be tabled before the federal cabinet which is scheduled to meet under Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Wednesday (today),” a senior FBR member told Business Recorder.
