FBR Launches Software for Monitoring Sales Tax Returns

Chairman Federal Board of Revenue, Syed Muhammad Shabbar Zaidi, has inaugurated a new software called Centralized Sales Tax & FED Assessment & Processing (CSTAP) to effectively monitor sales tax returns.

It was inaugurated at FBR Headquarters and was developed by the IR-Operations Wing of FBR. The purpose of this software is to identify tax gaps and to determine actual Sales Tax/FED liabilities of all taxpayers.

Chairman FBR was given a live demonstration on the application by Ms. Seema Shakeel, Member IR-Operations. This software will also be used for processing refund claims.

The chairman was also informed that the first batch of 25 officers from field formations have been asked to test run this project from 11th September 2019. After a successful test run of this project, it will be made available to all field formations throughout the country.
