ISLAMABAD: The Fede­ral Board of Revenue (FBR) on Wednesday notified the fixed value of steel products for assessment of sales tax through SRO 985.

The sales tax will be applicable on the ad valorem basis at the rate as applicable. The value of steel bars and other long profile is fixed at Rs140,000 per tonne, steel billets at Rs125,000 per tonne, steel ingots/bala, ship plats at Rs120, 000 per tonne and other re-rollable iron and steel scrap at Rs118,000 per tonne.

It was further clarified that the value of goods will be the value at which the supply is made in case the value of supply of the goods is higher than the value fixed.

Through a Sales Tax General Order No7, the FBR has issued details for licensing of brand name under section 40E of sales tax for specific sectors.

As a result, all existing and new manufacturers of specific sectors are required to register their brand of each product with the FBR before selling in the market. Every manufacturer will have to submit an application to the project director of the track and trace system along with supportive documents. The application will include all details and operations regarding their businesses/activities.

After the submission of the application by manufacturer, project office track and trace system will review the application and schedule a mandatory hearing with the manufacturer within seven working days of the receipt of the application.
