There are a significant number of people who use smartphones in Pakistan who still like utilizing earlier models of the iPhone over purchasing a phone manufactured in China. People have the idea in their heads that the iPhone is a status symbol that also has the highest quality. This is a misconception.
Therefore, I have some excellent news for everyone in Pakistan who is still using an earlier model iPhone. The Federal Board of Revenue has announced that the PTA Taxes that are imposed on iPhones will be lowered. Let’s take a look at the recently revised PTA taxes that apply to the iPhone 7 series.
|PTA Taxes on Passport (PKR)
|PTA Taxes on CNIC (PKR)
|Previous PTA Taxes on Passport (PKR)
|Previous PTA Taxes on CNIC (PKR)
|iPhone 7 Plus
Even with the reduction, it is quite clear that the taxes placed on these older iPhones are excessively high. Because of this, we propose that the FBR not charge taxes on any smartphone that is older than 5 years if at all possible. In addition, if you have any doubts regarding these taxes or if you wish to determine the PTA tax on any other smartphone, you can use our PTA Tax Calculator.
