FBR Launches Offline Application for Taxpayers

In continuation of its policy of facilitation of taxpayers and ensuring ease of doing business, Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has launched Iris-ADX (Asynchronous Data eXchange), an application that allows a taxpayer/E-intermediary to prepare data related to Sales Tax returns including sales invoices, debit/credit notes and sales tax withholding, in offline mode.

With the launch of this application, the taxpayer/EI will be able to prepare sales tax invoices without having to remain connected to the internet, thus the issues related to connectivity, peak load, system downtime etc. will have no effect on the speed or efficiency of data entry.

  • This is a good initiative as their servers are not enough to facilitate the load at peak closing dates

  • FBR’s struggle to facilitate both taxpayers and E.Intermediaries is appreciative. Iris is more easy and helpful in efling all returns. Especially Synchronizing data facility is more helpful and facilitative.
