Mr. As income for the tax year 2008 is as under
Pakistan source income
Taxable salary 800,000

Taxable capital gain 200,000

Foreign source business income not exempt under tax treaty 300,000

Income tax on 1,300,000 @ 12.5% 162,500

Less Foreign tax credit

a) Pakistan average rate of tax applicable on foreign

source income 162,500/1,300,000 x 300,000 37,500

b) Foreign income tax paid 30,000

Whichever is lower 30,000

Total tax liability 132,500

Less Tax deducted from salary 60,000

Tax payable with return of income 72,500
In my opinion your working is in accordance with section 103 of ITO, 2001 and it is correct.
Same treatment in case if a business individual ,partner of firm and director of company earned foreign income apart of local income ?
