APTPMA backs traders' strike

All Pakistan Textile Processing Mills Association (APTPMA) has decided to support the traders strike against unjustified taxes, according to reports in the Pakistani media.

Vice chairman Kh Shahzad Nasir told a press conference in Lahore that APTPMA will also join hands with the All Pakistan Textile Mills Association, announcing closure of industry on Aug 5 as well as on 7 in protest of GIDC and other taxes on export-oriented industry.

He urged the government to announced incentives for the filers, exempting them from 0.3 per cent withholding tax imposed on all banking transactions, as it would encourage non-filers to come into the tax net and government would achieve its all targets aimed at expansion of tax net.

There should be no withholding tax for the filers as they are already performing their national obligation with honesty, he said. This is a double taxation which is bound to hit the trade and industry hard.

He said the tax would force business community to conduct its monetary transactions in cash that would promote black economy. (SH)
