The said large stores must be integrated with the Board’s POS system, according to the FBR’s STGO. The list of 124 businesses that were identified showed that the major merchants are not registered with the sales tax department for the POS and are not depositing the sales tax they have collected from customers into the national exchequer.

The FBR published a list of 81 large shops (Tier-1) last month. These stores are required to interface with the FBR’s POS system and will not be eligible for a 60% input tax credit if they do not. There are currently 124 large merchants (Tier-1) that must be connected with the POS system. The board has determined that these large retailers (Tier-1) will face increased sales tax demands if they do not connect with the FBR’s POS system by the deadline of February 10, 2023.
