Dear friends congratulation. Finaly a fair workable out come on taxes. Basicly no major changes from last year. Market will insha Allah recover now and trading should start with normal pace like before July 1st 2016

FBR to set market prices once a year and capital gain tax to recieved on market rates for 3 years at these rates. Aftrer 3 years ZERO tax on profits on property sales. FBR market rates will be about 200% to 300% higher than current DC rates.

Capital gain tax will be 10% for first (Same as last year no change here)

Capital gain tax will be 7.5% for second year ( Was 5% last year so increase 2.5%)

Capital gain tax will be 5% for third year ( Was 0% last year so increase of 5% )

Property purchased before July 1st 2016 will have a flat 5% capital gains tax sold any times within 3 years . Even if sold today only 5%.

0.4% Withholding tax will be charged for over 40 lacs values only ( Was charged at 30 lacs last so good news here now amount 10 lacs higher). Lower priced plots will be seeing more demand due to this change. Lower priced properties will gain strong in future.

There is no withholding or capital gain tax on any property below 40 lakhs worth so files like Lake City Lahore 5 or 7 maarla will gains strongest. Insha Allah

    I have just uploaded new and full video with all details about taxes. Please watch this important video to fully understand how the new taxes will be imposed.

    Please also note capital gains tax will be charged as per Fair Value Chart made by FBR with property dealers suggestions which is almost 200 to 300% higher than the present DC rates in 21 cities of Pakistan.

    You will pay capital gains tax on profit amounts only when you will file tax returns and profits amount subjected to gains tax will be after deductions of your property transfer fees and dealers commissions etc.

    But since its a provincial matter to set own DC rates CVT/Stamp duty will be charged on provincial DC rates which are also being increased by 35 % in Punjab on average from last years DC rates. It is understand able increase as property in Lahore have almost doubled since last in most projects.

    I strongly suggest and request all dealers buyers sellers to use FBR market rates table in their sale deeds. Must tell your dealers to write only FBR market value in sale deed and pay order should be made only for that amount even if actual price is higher or lower. (Text me on Whatsapp to know the impact and great benefit / reason of this suggestion)
