President Mamnoon Approves Tax Amnesty Scheme

Islamabad: President Mamnoon Hussain issued the Foreign Assets Ordinance (Declaration and Repatriation) on Sunday that will bring into effect the Tax Amnesty Scheme as announced by the Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.

The ordinance covers leased assets, declaration of property as per the fair market value, declared and undeclared foreign assets, stock & shares, real estate mortgaged assets, bank accounts, cash, jewels, paintings, loan receivables, and contribution in trusts & offshore entities.

It is also confirmed by the sources that officials appointed by the government would be empowered for the successful implementation of the ordinance.

Impact of Amnesty Scheme on Property Sector

According to the government, most tax evasions take place in real estate transactions. There are enormous gaps in property values and they are registered at lower amounts as compared to their original values.

Following taxes are approved for real estate transactions:

  • 1% advance Income Tax on all property dealings
  • Advance tax to be adjusted in income tax liability
  • Federal govt to recommend a maximum 1% local, provincial taxes
  • The Government of Pakistan can buy property by paying 100% above declared value

It is yet to be known what impact this ordinance will have on the real estate sector as a whole, but we, are optimistic that it will prove to be beneficial for all the stakeholders involved.
