Betterment of the export sector

Along with this, FBR has also taken measures to reduce human interaction and create a business-friendly environment. They also brought automation in the clearance system, weBOC.

Measures taken to enhance export

  1. Reduction in the retention period:

    The retention period of plants, machinery, and capital goods is reduced from 10 to 5. Due to this, the export industry will be able to keep track of the latest updates and technologies. In case, if the plant, machinery, and capital goods are sold or disposed before the expiration date, some new slabs of duty and taxes are introduced for this purpose. After five years, there will be no duties and taxes. The disposal mechanism of spare and replacement parts can be disposed of after three years.

  2. Reduction in the tiers of administration:

    Here, if there are any difficulties, the chief collector of customs will be available. The businessmen can address their problems to the chief. .

  3. Burden alleviated from getting the analysis card issued:

    From the Input-Output Coefficient Organization (IOCO) or Engineering Development Board (EDB) the responsibility is relieved. This is to say, if the ratios are the same in both the analysis certificate and the previous year, then the regular authority will issue the license on their own. They won't seek recommendations or approvals from the IOCO/EDB..

  4. No hurt to the export-oriented units:

    The provision for issuance of the analysis certificate is given in export-oriented units if there's any delay. Hence, there will be no hurt to the faced by the export-oriented units in any circumstances..
