Tajir Dost Scheme 2024 FBR

ISLAMABAD: The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has introduced the latest Tajir Dost module on the Tax Asaan App, providing a convenient platform for traders and shopkeepers to manage their tax obligations directly from their smartphones.

The Tajir Dost module, a user-friendly addition to the Tax Asaan App, is now accessible to traders in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Quetta, and Peshawar.

According to FBR sources, additional cities will be incorporated into the program in the upcoming phases. Shopkeepers and traders are advised to register for the National Tax Number Certificate using the Tax Asaan App, FBR’s online portal, or designated Tax Facilitation Centres by April 30, 2024.

FBR Introduces Pilot Project “Tajir Dost Scheme 2024” in Major Cities

The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has initiated a pilot project called the “Tajir Dost Scheme 2024” in select federal and provincial capitals, with plans to expand it to other cities in subsequent phases.

According to sources, the scheme’s first phase has been launched in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad/Rawalpindi, Peshawar, and Quetta. The scheme will be gradually rolled out to additional cities, including Faisalabad, in the future.

When questioned about including Rawalpindi, which is not a capital city, sources explained that Islamabad and Rawalpindi are interconnected, hence both cities were included in the scheme’s initial phase.

Commenting on the city selection criteria, tax experts expressed concerns that the selection may have been politically influenced. They suggested that cities with significant economic activity should have been prioritized. However, the FBR’s choice appears to have been based on political considerations rather than economic indicators. Notably, cities like Faisalabad and Sialkot, which host a large number of wholesalers, dealers, and retailers, were overlooked.

The Tajir Dost Scheme 2024 targets traders and shopkeepers operating from fixed business locations such as shops, stores, warehouses, offices, or similar establishments within the territorial limits of Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Peshawar, Quetta, and Rawalpindi. The scheme aims to facilitate registration and the payment of minimum advance tax for eligible businesses.

In these cities, the scheme extends to various business entities, including wholesalers, dealers, retailers, manufacturers with retail operations, importers engaged in retail, as well as individuals involved in retail and wholesale activities within the supply chain.

The term ‘shopkeeper’ encompasses wholesalers, retailers, dealers, manufacturers with retail operations, importers involved in retail, or individuals engaged in both retail and wholesale activities within the supply chain.
