PESHAWAR      -          The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa revenue authority (KPRA) has announced to conduct registration week to facilitate people associated with services sector in the province. For Peshawar, the Registration Week would be started on March 9 and will continue until March 12.

Each regional office of the authority would conduct their registration week on separate dates.

“Paying taxes is our obligation and it is our tax money that fiscally empowers the government to finance developmental projects in your area. Your tax money would not only make the province economically self reliant but the development it brings will ensure prosperous Khyber Pakhtunkhwa with visible growth in business and trade,” said Fayyaz Ali Shah in his message for the drive.

“We are observing the registration week to facilitate our people and to ease their job. Anyone associated with services sector can come and visit our mobile registration offices and get their businesses registered with the authority,” he said.

People can also directly contact KPRA through WhatsApp, telephone or visit its website to get any information regarding registration or sale tax on services.

Under the KP Finance Act 2013, Sales tax on services is mandatory for every business owner providing services in the province.

To pay sales tax on services it is mandatory to register the business first and this registration week is aimed at providing the facility to KP people to ease their job.
