Implementation Of Reformed GST In Pakistan

Pakistan is in dire need of increasing its tax revenues by implementing a broad-based modern form of sales tax on goods and services. The Sales Tax Act, 1990, was originally designed on the basis of accepted value added taxation doctrines but due to political compromises and revenue exigencies, it increasingly became distorted and narrow-based because of ever-expanding exemptions, special regimes, multiplicity of rates and several other deviations from international best concepts and practices. Resultantly, not only the tax base of sales tax and income tax has been eroded but also lack of documentation of the national economy has proved a big hindrance in the development of effective tax policy options.


Networkblog is good. I prefer the other badge though. It is good to see the faces of friends who are following. No?
