The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) and the Punjab Revenue Authority (PRA) are no longer allowed to collect advance taxes on wedding hall reservations after the Lahore High Court (LHC) on Tuesday prohibited them from doing so.
People complained to the Lahore High Court (LHC) about the FBR and PRA’s collecting of advance tax. The applications were considered by the high court’s only bench.
Mohsin Virk, the applicant’s attorney, concluded his argument before the LHC against the Federal Board of Revenue and the Punjab Revenue Authority (PRA).
When the Lahore High Court (LHC) published its ruling, it prohibited FBR and PRA from collecting advance tax from people booking wedding venues.
The petitions were also forwarded to the head of the Federal Board of Revenue following the LHC’s announcement of its decision.
The inclusion of Rs 6,000 in the fixed monthly GST on lawyers’ electricity bills was already ruled invalid by the Lahore High Court (LHC) Rawalpindi bench. The LHC Rawalpindi bench heard the Lahore High Court Rawalpindi Bar Association’s petition.
