Federal Board of Revenue today (31st May, 2018) issued further refunds of Rs 31.3 billion to take the total amount of refunds issued during the year to more than Rs 100 billion in first 11 months as against Rs 54 billion issued during the entire 12 months of the previous year.
Meanwhile, Federal Board of Revenue during the first 11 months of the current financial year has also recorded a provisional net revenue collection of over Rs. 3274 billion as against Rs. 2854 billion collected during the same period of the previous fiscal year, excluding collection on account of book adjustments which depicts an increase of around 15%.
The provisional collection for the month of May 2018 is Rs 351 billion excluding collection on account of book adjustments.
