Staff Reporter

Lahore—The Federal Board of Revenue has developed a website WEBOC (web based one customs) to facilitate importers and exporters for prompt clearance of goods electronically without physical contact between taxpayers and tax collectors.
Addressing a workshop jointly organized by FBR Directorate General of Training and Research, and Pakistan Furniture Council, an officer of Directorate General of Intelligence and Investigation Customs Lahore, Ms Zainab Mehmood said here Monday that WEBOC was one of the most modern and efficient system of clearance of goods which was available in most of the countries around the world. “The system seeks to create a paperless environment and to do away with the role of middleman agents, and it is meant to enhance transparency and reduce level of corruption,” she added.
