KPRA starts crackdown against non-compliant hotels and restaurants in Peshawar

Peshawar: KPRA confiscated records of two big restaurants in Peshawar over tax non-compliance.

The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Revenue Authority (KPRA) has launched a crackdown against non-compliant taxpayers in Peshawar to improve tax compliance and discourage tax evasion.

A team of KPRA Peshawar, including Assistant Collector Khalid Mansoor, Assistant Collector Roohullah Khan, Assistant Collector Shahnawaz Khan, and inspectors, conducted raids on two big restaurants located on University Road and confiscated their records.

On the directives of Director General KPRA Fouzia Iqbal, KPRA has launched a crackdown against non-compliant taxpayers in Peshawar, and on Thursday, the KPRA team conducted raids on different restaurants and confiscated their record.

The restaurants were served with notices and asked to submit their records to KPRA but did not respond to the notices, after which the raids were conducted, and the record was confiscated as per KPRA rules and regulations.

DG KPRA Fouzia Iqbal, in her statement, said that they have noticed persistent non-compliance from restaurants and hotels in Peshawar, and despite the issuance of several notices by KPRA, numerous hotels and restaurants still need to be compliant.

“This has forced KPRA to start enforcement drive in the city against non-compliant restaurants and hotels,” she said, adding that KPRA teams will confiscate their records, attach bank accounts, and seal businesses if restaurants and hotel owners continue to evade tax and remain non-compliant.

“To avoid strict actions of KPRA, it is for the information of all registered persons who have failed to deposit tax or have made short payments or not issued proper sales tax invoices or under-reporting their sales that they must settle their tax liabilities and deposit the due tax well in time,” the DG KPRA said.
