LAHORE: The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has extended the Export Facilitation Scheme 2021 to all direct and indirect exporters and vendors, Lahore Collector of Customs (Appraisement) Dr Mubashir Baig said on Tuesday.
“For the first time, the scheme has been extended to all direct and indirect exporters, common export houses, vendors and international toll manufacturers with free mobility of goods from one user to another,” Dr Baig said while addressing a workshop on the scheme organised for members of the All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (Aptma).
The scheme is aimed at facilitating the export-oriented sector to acquire duty- and tax-free local and imported inputs in order to make Pakistani products competitive vis-à-vis regional rivals.
Under the scheme the acquisition of goods would be subject to the authorisation of inputs by the Collector of Customs and the director general of the Input-Output Organisation.
