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.
The applicants’ attorney, Mohsin Virk, finished speaking in opposition to the Federal Board of Revenue and the Punjab Revenue Authority before the LHC (PRA).
Later, the Lahore High Court (LHC) prohibited FBR and PRA from collecting advance tax from those reserving wedding venues when it announced its judgment.
After the LHC announced its ruling, the petitions were also sent to the chairman of the Federal Board of Revenue.
The Lahore High Court (LHC) Rawalpindi bench had already declared invalid the inclusion of Rs 6,000 in fixed monthly GST on lawyers’ electricity bills.
The Lahore High Court Rawalpindi Bar Association petition was heard by the LHC Rawalpindi bench.
