I have a quick question, being an overseas pakistani having had the pakistani nationality but now residing in the uk permanently as a citizen, i've plans to buy a house in eme dha lahore.

Would anyone please advise the process and also as a non-filer in pakistan, can i buy and is there any extra tax payable on the transaction.

A step by step guideline would be appreciated.

Thank you

    Avais, regarding non-filer restriction, I have just posted on another thread, hopefully that will help you as well;

    "persons holding a Pakistan origin card or a national identity card for overseas Pakistanis who are able to produce a certificate from a scheduled bank verifying receipt of foreign exchange remitted from outside Pakistan through normal banking channels during a period of sixty days prior to the date of registering, recording or attesting transfer of immovable property valuing above Rs 5 million."

    I couldn't locate the SRO, but here is the news item. Hope this will help. So don't count on it if you've sent money from non-baking channels, or want to mobilize the money already in Pakistan, then this exemption may not apply. So check with FBR.

    Note, upto 10m PKR per annum remitted to Pakistan through normal banking channels is 100% tax free. If the amount exceeds the limit, FBR will also probe it.
