Tax on Small shipments
I want to know if we ship small orders just below 1 lac through DHL or any other courier from Pakistan to some other country. Is there any tax applied.

Actually,we are going to make small garments and want to ship some small consignments to someone. while calculating the price I had not cosidered any tax applied, so is there any tax applied for small orders too?

Dear the position taken by the tax department is correct.

You have to pay the sales tax on applicable tax rates during 2007 to 2011, during the period in which you were un-registered, if applicable SED is also payable, plus default surcharge @ KIBOR+3% from the actual date of payment to the date liability actually paid. Sales tax will be applicable only if, goods sold are taxable.

Further you will not be allowed adjustment against the said payment of tax.

Relevent sections are reproduced below for your convinience. However you should consult with a good sales tax consultant who may advise you if any provision is available in your favour. I think you should have get yourself registered with new entity to avoid these kind of issues.
