RAWALPINDI: Rawalpindi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (RCCI) President Saboor Malik on Monday urged the government must realise the ground realities of common businessmen and come up with an amicable solution for the documentation of economy after consultations with stakeholders.
“The business community is not against the documentation of economy, however, the harassment on the account of revenue collection and documentation must be stopped,” he said while addressing a traders’ meeting at the chamber house.
He said the traders were approaching the chamber with complaints of notices from the Inland Revenue (IR) Department. The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) officials must facilitate the taxpayers and that their focus should be on potential taxpayers, he added.
Despite the FBR’s assurances, he alleged, raids were being carried out on different business centres, causing fear among the traders.
