    • faisal

      man ,

      before pointing first check you stats , buddy .

      I happen to have one of Telenor’s tower installed in my piece of land , Even when they pay rent for the tower they deduct WHT ( with holding Tax)

      WHICH IS DEPOSITED IN ” PAKISTAN ” , as we always get a Deposit Slip every year from the FBR , Pakistan.

      When it comes to Taxes & Payments they are much more organized that the Govt. itself.

    lol @ all goes to Norway. Every forign investor is allowed a percentage of profits to be repatriated. If this was’nt the case, no one would invest in another country.

  • telecomguru

    Do we have an issue with a company be successful in Pakistan? Telenor and all telecom companies pay close to 1/3rd of their revenue in taxes – amongst the highest in the world. As a matter of fact Telecom is one of the most effective tax collectors in Pakistan in a setup where neither the individuals nor businesses pay taxes. The mindset of the the common person has been brainwashed by the deeds of our leaders, politicians, and bureaucrats…. Still, lets not lose hope.

    Govt is looting from the pockets of MANGO MAN through invisible hands of TELCOS……….
    That’s it………
