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.
