Earlier on August 10, Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) had urged people to file complaints against businessmen who were charging sales tax without registering themselves under sales tax act.
According to details, FBR had issued a circular which stated that general public had reported complaints against the businessmen who were charging sales tax from consumers without being registered with FBR under the Sales Tax Act-1990.
“It is, therefore, clarified that sales tax registration number (STRN) (thirteen digits) is issued to every person who is registered for sales tax purpose and only that person is authorized to change sales tax on his taxable sales except where goods fall under third schedule to the Sales Tax Act-1990,” read the circular issued by FBR.
