Finance Bill 2020 increases the threshold for a tax deduction on salary in cash to Rs.25000.

Major Changes related to tax deductions have been proposed in the finance bill 2020 and this is done so to provide relief to the business community.

The threshold amount for a tax deduction in case of salary has been increased to 25000 rupees.

According to the interpretation of the Finance Bill 2020 by BDO Pakistan, the Finance Bill proposed amendments to Section 21 of the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001.

The Bill seeks to enhance the threshold of the deduction for cash payment against business income under a single account head from Rupees fifty thousand to Rupees two hundred and fifty thousand per annum.

This proposal is intended to relieve the business community from making transactions through the banking channel as making each and every transaction through a banking channel is difficult for the business.

Also, the bill has proposed for increasing the threshold of expenditure liable to be disallowed as a business expense of the same is not made through the banking channel, and the amount is proposed to be increased from Rs.10000 to Rs.25000 per transaction.

The Bill proposes for increasing the threshold from Rs.15000 to Rs.25000 as an allowable deduction against business income if the salary is paid in cash.

The bill is proposed to add two new clauses. The clauses would regulate the limit of expenditure on account of the utility bill and sales made to persons required to be registered but not registered under the sales tax act 1990. The Bill seeks to enhance threshold from Rs.15000 to Rs.25000 as an allowable deduction against business income if the salary is paid in cash.

However, the disallowances of expenditure shall not exceed the 20 percent of the total deduction claimed.

SRB extends date of filling the sales tax return for May 2020

The date of filling sales tax return for the month of May 2020 has been extended by the Sindh Revenue Board.

The SRB issued a notification extending the last date for e-deposit of Sindh sales tax for the tax period May 2020 and for e-filing of the tax return for the tax period May 2020.

As per the notification, registered persons including the withholding agents covered by provisions of the Sindh Sales Tax Special Procedure (Withholding) Rules, 2014 have been allowed by the SRB for:

E-deposit the amounts of Sindh sales tax for the tax period May 2020 on or before Monday, June 29, 2020

E-file their returns for the tax period, May 2020 on or before, Thursday, July 02, 2020.

Finance Bill 2020 burdens the taxpayers by restoring the multiple-year audits.

The frequency of conducting the audit of taxpayers was previously restricted to once in three years period in the finance act 2018.

The government has been criticized by the business community for eliminating the condition of conducting audits once in three years period in the Finance Bill 2020.

Anomalies in the Finance Bill 2020 were highlighted by the Overseas Investors Chamber of Commerce and Industry (OICCI) and sent to the Federal Board of Revenue Pakistan. As per this, the omission of the condition would burden the taxpayers and would give sweeping powers to tax officials.

The amendment of 2018 demonstrated the confidence of the Government on the records maintained by registered persons.

The bill is proposed to omit the condition of conducting audit once in a three year period. If the bill is passed, this would pass the unnecessary burden on the taxpayers and the sweeping powers would be handled to the assessing officers of Inland Revenue, and the officers could be able to conduct audits of one or multiple tax periods without any reprieve for the taxpayer available under law.

As a consequence, the taxpayer’s confidence in the revenue machinery will be eroded and it would also cause the unnecessary wastage of time and effort by the revenue authorities.

The OICCI said that during the FBR/OICCI Weblink meeting on May 5th the FBR Member (IR-Operations) informed that new Audit Policy will be announced soon, where there will be only one audit in three years u/s 122, which was welcomed by OICCI members.

For OICCI members, the removal of the condition of one audit in three years in the Finance Bill 2020 is probably a shock.

As per the sayings of OICCI, “we strongly advocate maximum of one for audit within three years, for promoting Ease of Doing Business,”
