KARACHI: President Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce & Industry, Mian Nasser Hyatt Maggo, has expressed deep concern over disregard the FPCCI’s suggestions by Muhammad Javed Ghani, Chairman FBR and not to take seriously to set up “FBR Help Desk” at Federation House Karachi.
In a statement, FPCCI president said that the FPCCI being the apex national body representing entire trade, Industry, services sectors and receives a lot of complaints and issues regarding tax facilitation. The FPCCI members in their individual capacity as well as through this platform launch their complaint, issues, however due to weak, lack of communication the businessmen suffer a lot; hence, it’s very needful to establish “FBR Help Desk” at Federation House Karachi.
Nasser Hyatt Maggo further said that FPCCI sent a letter to Chairman FBR Muhammad Javed Ghani on January 14, 2021for establishing help desk to address the growing problems and increasing grievances of the business community taxes. Letters of reminder were also sent on January 21 and on February 3, 2021, but unfortunately, Chairman FBR did not consider it appropriate to reply to any letter. This raises serious concerns in the business community. The question is that FBR was avoiding timely steps to facilitate traders and address their issues on a priority basis, which is beyond comprehension.
FPCCI president urged the Chairman FBR to immediately set up an “FBR Help Desk” at Federation House Karachi to provide facilities to traders and industrialists and solve their problems on time. This will definitely help in resolving tax related grievances and will also increase the revenue.
