    Cotton growers exempted from withholding tax:
    On the directives of Prime Minister Gilani, the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has decided to exempt cotton growers from paying 3.5 percent withholding tax. An official notification in this regard will be issued in the next couple of days, it is learnt.
    “Yes, we have taken the decision to exempt cotton growers from withholding tax and now the ongoing strike should be called off,” Member, Inland Revenue Service (IRS) of the FBR, Khawar Khurshid Butt, confirmed while talking to The News here Friday.
    The sources clarified that when the cotton ginners would get cotton from the growers there would be no tax charged at that stage. But the FBR would collect 10 percent withholding tax from commission agents or intermediaries.
    Meanwhile, a meeting of sub-group of the Tax Reform Co-ordination Group (TRCG) was held under the chairmanship of finance minister Dr Abdul Hafeez Shaikh on Friday to discuss the strategy for revenue collection for FY 2011-12.
    In the meeting FBR presented a strategic plan for revenue collection in FY11-12. Chairman FBR presented the collection details of FY 10-11 and the provisional revenue figures of Rs105bn for the month of July 2011, which shows a healthy growth of 36% compared to last year’s collection for the same month.

    PM directs FBR to exempt growers from 3.5% withholding tax
    ISLAMABAD, Aug 13 (APP): Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani on Saturday directed Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) to exempt growers from levy of 3.5 percent withholding tax. The Prime Minister issued the directive on the request of Pakistan Cotton Ginners Association. The withholding tax will now be deducted from Commission agents by the Ginners and deposited in the government treasury. The Prime Minister said this step would not only remove the malpractices of bogus certificates to avoid taxes, but will also broaden the tax base as registration of commission agents will lead to efficient tax recovery.
