FBR has launched sin gle identifier number for all domestic taxes. Under this initiative a taxpayer can use all applications under the Income Tax, Sales Tax and Federal Excise duty by mere use of CNIC if a taxpayer is an individual.

In case of partnership firms and companies, Na-tional Tax Number (NTN) shall be the common tax identifier number. In this manner the Sales Tax, Income Tax and Federal Excise law have been har-monized.

This is an important step toward ease of doing business and will substantially improve Paki-stan’s rating on this count.

FBR has also launched a facility whereby taxpayers can now make payments without visiting the bank. This facility is widely known as Alternate Delivery Channel (ADC) payment mode.

ADC allows taxpayer to pay all Federal taxes and duties i.e. Income Tax, Sales Tax, Customs duty and Federal Excise Duty from any commercial bank account through internet banking, ATM, mobile banking and Contact Centers.

However in the case of individual taxpayer, the alternate facility of making the payment over the counter (OTC) has still been allowed simultane-ously along with ADC channel till 30th September 2021, so that no inconvenience is caused to the in-dividual taxpayer for seamless filing of returns.
