Laptops and Computers to Get Much More Expensive in Pakistan Soon

Laptops and personal computers are likely to get more expensive in Pakistan as the government is looking to impose a 17 percent sales tax on all kinds of computers under the supplementary finance bill 2021, which will be tabled before the National Assembly.

Sources told Propakistani that at the present, the sales tax is exempted on the import and local supplies of computers. It has been proposed to levy 17 percent sales tax on laptop computers, personal computers and notebooks.

The relevant entities in the Exemption Schedule of the Sales Tax Act 1990 will be deleted through the supplementary finance bill 2021. The withdrawal of sales tax exemption will impose a standard rate of 17 percent sales tax on all kinds of computers imported in the country.


    • This govt is making the country more stable. Do you honestly think that imports are exempted in other countries? How do you think we are going to repay our loans? Get basic education in economics first.

      • i wish people realized you as dead in the previous government when the same thugs and dacoits were screaming about inflation that was negligible as compared to today.

        • oh so this is the solution economic ninja?. They did good in mobile section where they incentivize the local production first then imposed the taX and it makes sense. In pc and laptop section its a wrong move as we don’t even produce pc cases indigenously. Students, free lancers, content creators need these.

  • Laptop aur computer mehanga karna shows that this government has a stone age thinking,
    Sorry Parents, This government will going to end your child’s future.
    80% of Pakistanis are missing those looters,
    Nawaz Sharif’s tenor is much more needed now.
    PTI is Failure. Big Time….

  • This govt. has effed up every single living thing in this country.
    Alas I was also one of their voters. :(

  • سب سے پہلے آپ نے گھبرانا نہی ہے

    مزا لو تبدیلی کا – اور جس کاتبدیلی کا کیڑا ابھی نہی مرا – وہ بھی کچھ دن بعد مر جائے گا

  • Well, we have been paying a lot for these things already. I personally have mostly paid $1000+ for something that’s $700-$800 MSRP.
    If they can get us things at MSRP I won’t mind paying %17 tax. It’s way better than the jagga tax our noora mentality awam charges.

  • Worst GOVT ever . Big mistake voting Imran khan . We need a policy maker in country .

    Plus not favouring Looters nawaz aswell
