FBR Changes Vehicle Transfer Rates, Non-Filers to Pay Up to Rs 300,000

The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has announced an increase in vehicle transfer fee for income tax filers, whereas a certain amount of transfer fee will be waived off for those who have filed their tax returns for the fiscal year 2017-18.

FBR is aiming to tighten its grip on tax evaders who haven’t filed their tax returns this year.

Vehicle Transfer Fees

The transfer fee differs for different cars and for the tax payers and non-payers.

  • Cars with engines up to 850CC – Free (filer), Rs 5,000 (non-filer)
  • Cars with engines between 851CC to 1,000CC – Rs 5,000 (filer), Rs 15,000 (non-filer)
  • Cars with engines between 1,001CC to 1,300CC – Rs 7,500 (filer), Rs 25,000 (non-filer)
  • Cars with engines between 1,301CC to 1,600CC – Rs 12,500 (filer), Rs 65,000 (non-filer)
  • Cars with engines between 1,601CC to 1,800CC – Rs 18,750 (filer), Rs 100,000 (non-filer)
  • Cars with engines between 1,801CC to 2,000CC – Rs 25,000 (filer), Rs 135,000 (non-filer)
  • Cars with engines between 2,001CC to 2,500CC – Rs 37,500 (filer), Rs 200,000 (non-filer)
  • Cars with engines between 2,501CC to 3,000CC – Rs 50,000 (filer), Rs 270,000 (non-filer)
  • Cars with engines above 3,000CC – Rs 62,500 (filer), Rs 300,000 (non-filer)

Engine Capacities and  Transfer Fees

The transfer fee waiver increases with increasing engine capacity, meaning that on a 1300 cc vehicle, the fee would be Rs. 25000 and Rs. 7500 for non-filers and tax-filers, respectively.

On the other hand, cars with lower engine capacities like 800cc can be transferred free if the buyer is a filer.

The decision to waive off the transfer fee is welcoming for those who have paid their dues as per the law, and worrisome for those who have yet to file them.

The move is expected to increase revenues for FBR as the election year draws near.

    Guidance requested: I have sold my car one year ago but the buyer have not transferred it to his name, when I check the online vehicle registration portal it still shows in my name.. when I ask it from the buyer he says that Ok I will transfer it very soon…… but not done that yet……. Kindly advise me how should I mention that transaction in my Wealth statement while Annual Tax filing online? I got the payment though online transfer and we docmented the sale purchase agreement on Stamp paper as well.
