The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) will be taking action against more than 500 beauty parlours and salons in Karachi for being involved in tax evasion.

According to a notification issued on May 30, it has been stated that hundreds of famous beauty parlours and salons of Karachi did not pay a single penny in income tax, while some beauty parlours show less income to avoid paying tax.

Hyderabad’s Regional Tax Office II Madad Ali Bhatti has said that some beauty parlours serving in Karachi are earning millions of rupees daily.

First stage notices will be sent to them asking to clear outstanding dues at the earliest to avoid further action. Any parlour failing to clear the outstanding dues will be facing legal action after Eid.

    Excellent. I have always maintained that major chunks of money will come from existing assesses who are evading taxes. Strategy to go after sector by sector will prevent major revolt. Must ensure political will.

    How the system will work

    A copy of the bill issued to the customer after the installation will electronically reach to the FBR’s concerned department. Through which not only the actual sale of the outlet will be determined but also the sales tax charge on every customer can be monitored.

    According to the source, the system has already been installed into 3000 restaurants and would be installed to many more.
