When asked about the FBR’s capacity to conduct such a huge number of cases for audit in one go, officials said all these cases would be outsourced to the chartered account firms and external auditors. They added that these audits would not be conducted by the FBR’s Inland Revenue officials in the field formations. Therefore, the officials asserted, the FBR was confident that the audits would get completed as per the timelines given by the FBR.
