The FBR will be entitled to take off Sui-gas connections, power, mobile/SIM cards, and bank accounts if the individual is registered but not on ATL following the ordinance’s promulgation. In addition, the board will stop gas and electricity for individuals and Tier-1 retailers who are either unregistered or registered but not “integrated in accordance with section 3(9A) of the Sales Tax Act 1990.”
