The Federal Board of Revenue has asked the United Arab Emirates for details of Pakistanis holding an Iqama (work permit) from UAE.
The tax authority wrote on Friday a letter to the UAE finance ministry which seeks the bank account details of Pakistanis holding a UAE work permit.
The move is reportedly a reaction over suspicion that some people may have laundered funds to the country under the guise of a work permit.
In the letter, however, the FBR’s directorate of internal taxes said information already received from the UAE was “not very substantial”.
It also said it will be taking action against beauty salons that don’t pay tax.
