ISLAMABAD: Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has made it mandatory for food outlets to display tax amount along with retail price in menus.
The FBR issued SRO 353(I)/2020 to make it mandatory for all the restaurants, bakeries, caterers and sweetmeat shops supplying prepared foods, foodstuff and sweetmeat to show prices and amount of tax separately on menu cards for menu board displayed in their outlets for the end consumers.
The FBR has made this requirement for tier-I retailers, who are required to integrate their point of sales with the FBR’s online system.
The FBR also made amendment through notification and made it mandatory for all the retailers to show prices and amount of tax separately on the price tags attached with finished fabric and locally manufactured finished articles of textile and textile made-ups leathers and artificial leather.
The FBR made these changes in order to ensure revenue generation from the retail sector. The FBR recently allowed input tax adjustment to Tier-1 retailers in order to attract more retailers into this segment.
