Yes yes, we hear you. The increasing taxes are killing all of us. Soon there will be tax on breathing as well. But do we really understand the ideology behind it?
For years, Pakistan has functioned on foreign aid and donations. From IMF loan to CPEC loan and various other institutions, the total debt on Pakistan continues to grow, without any signs of paying it back. With the increase in prices and devaluation of the Pakistani rupee comes the need of increasing taxes. However, the taxpayers of the country are certainly not happy with the new reformations.
Recently, Clothing Brands Were Asked to Increase the Sales Tax
Various local brands acknowledged the reforms and insisted the locals accept this.
Every other Clothing Brand is putting it on REVISED GST in budget and adding 17% GST in the total amount.
Weren't they (all brands) paying GST before as the prices were tax inclusive before & no sale invoice mentioned GST separately to consumer. pic.twitter.com/VFbKwkYYgh
