Jazz disputes govt's PKR 25.3 billion tax claims, watchdog seals operator's Islamabad office

Monday 2 November 2020 | 08:53 CET | News
Pakistani mobile operator Jazz reports it has received a notice from the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) for the recovery of a disputed tax demand. Jazz says it has "serious reservations on these alleged taxes". The operator claims the proceedings were carried out on plea of a tax recovery notice for a disputed amount from 2018 which is under legal proceedings. On 28 October, the FBR sealed Jazz's offices in Islamabad, due to non-payment of income tax amounting to PKR 25.3 billion.
