Islamabad: The federal government has decided to host a mobile app for real-time collection of general sales tax (GST) charged by hotels and restaurants all over the country.
The ultimate decision on this affair will be taken after meeting with all the stakeholders.
The app will send users swift receipt confirming tax collection from them and help to develop the government’s revenue from the food and accommodation sector. Moreover, the app can be incorporated with the tax mechanism so that GST payments are made on a real-time basis. This app system would also make sure to the consumers that their payment has entered the national treasury.
