FBR launched online module for Greenfield investors status registration

Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) launched an online module to facilitate investors to apply online to allow Greenfield industry status.

Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) launched online module in Iris for providing facility for submission of applications for the approval of “Greenfield Industry Status.” For this purpose, two separate applications in the module have been given under the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001 and Sales Tax Act, 1990.

The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) will allow status of the ‘Greenfield Industry’ to the business units after taking opinion of the Engineering Development Board (EDB) for allowing or disallowing sales tax exemption to such companies.
