FBR Seizes Al-Haj FAW’s Bank Accounts Over Tax Default

The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has frozen the bank accounts of Al-Haj FAW Motors after the company defaulted on its sales tax payment.

FBR’s Large Taxpayers Unit (LTU) in Karachi, on Friday, froze the bank accounts of the company stating that they have not received the sales tax for the last two months.

As per sales tax laws, every registered entity is required to make sales tax payment and file returns on a monthly basis.

Sources privy to the matter suggest that the automaker has neither paid sales tax amounting Rs. 239 million nor has the company submitted its returns for the last two months.
