Further tax relief on supply of spun yarn extended

ISLAMABAD (October 24 2003): To facilitate the textile sector, the Central Board of Revenue (CBR) has waived “further tax” on the supply of spun yarn to the unregistered units up to February 29, 2004.

The facility will be available to manufacturers-cum-suppliers, who are members of the All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (Aptma).

The CBR has issued Special Procedure for Manufactures-cum-Suppliers of Spun Yarn Rules 2003 through an SRO 998 (I)/2003 here on Thursday.

Previously, the CBR had given waiver of “further tax” to spun yarn suppliers from January 1-April 30, 2003, which was later extended up to September 1, 2003.

Under the new procedure, any registered person who opts to avail of the benefit of this notification but fails to provide requisite information would become ineligible to avail of the exemption of “further tax”.

Following is the text of the SRO 998 (I)/2003 issued here on Thursday: “In exercise of the powers conferred by Sub-section (1) of Section 71 of the Sales Tax Act, 1990, read with clause (a) of Sub-section (2) of Section 13 thereof, the Federal Government is pleased to make the following rules, namely:
