ISLAMABAD: The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) will implement a single portal for filing of single sales tax returns of the FBR and the Punjab Revenue Authority (PRA) for the telecom sector by October 31, 2023.

The FBR will also finalise a single portal for all provincial revenue authorities/ boards and sectors by May 31, 2024.

In this regard, the FBR has notified a supervisory team and an implementation team of the FBR/ PRAL officials.

Budget: telecom sector expresses disappointment

The board has constituted a 10-member committee for design, development, and implementation of the single portal for filing sales tax returns across jurisdictions.

The committee has been constituted in pursuance of the decision of the FBR chairman regarding the single portal across different sales tax jurisdictions to enhance the ease of doing business in the country.

The committee comprises Member (Reforms and Modernisation) Ardsher Saleem Tariq, Member (Information Technology) Nasir Khan, Chief (Provincial Taxes) Aamir Amin Bhatti, Chief (IT System), FBR Zainul Abidin Sahi, Second Secretary FBR Mahwish Khan, Senior Business Analyst PRAL Faisal Sulaiman, Senior Manager (Commercial Projects) PRAL Farheen Azhar, Manager (Development) PRAL Shahid Sharif, Director Program FBR Khalid Jamil, and Additional Director FBR Sadia Akmal.

This arrangement will be in supersession of the notification No 0700-IR-I/2023 dated March 15, 2023. In view of the fact that having developed the portal for a pilot with the Punjab Revenue Authority in the telecom sector, the next stage of implementation of the pilot and development of the portal with the rest of the provinces requires further support.

The committee may associate any resource from FBR and PRAL for consultation with different stakeholders and provincial revenue authorities as and when required.

The committee will complete the development of a single portal for filing of single sales tax returns of the FBR and Punjab Revenue Authority for the telecom sector by October 31, 2023, and complete the overall development of a single portal for all authorities and sectors by May 31, 2024.

Wonderful reporting. It fails to mention some basic details for the ordinary reader e.g. why it's being done, what benefits it's going to achieve.
