asset management companies
Asset Management Companies
  • Currently under serial No.8 of Table II of the First Schedule to the FE Act, services provided by banking companies or non-banking financial companies are subject to FED at the rate of 16%.
  • The tax authorities created huge demands against asset management companies from 2007 onwards for payment of FED on the management fee charged by them on the grounds that asset management companies are covered under non-banking financial companies as defined in the Act.
  • This has been challenged and cases are pending at the appellate forum.
asset management companies1
Asset Management Companies

  • However this comfort will not be available to asset management companies located in Sindh in view of the provisions of the Sindh Sales Tax on Services Act, 2011 unless a similar exemption is granted.

fair equitable practice of the law
Fair & equitable practice of the law
  • Unreasonable interpretation of law
  • Achievement of the budgeted targets should not be the basis of creating tax demands
  • A new interpretation which deviates from existing practice should not be enforced retrospectively
  • Even handed treatment should be meted out – e.g. gains and losses
  • Input tax should not be disallowed because an active taxpayer has failed to deposit the output tax
  • Joint and several liability of registered persons is a draconian provision of law
  • Delay in tax refunds
