ISLAMABAD: The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has lifted sales tax on the import of fresh fruits from Afghanistan.

According to the FBR, the country’s supreme tax collection body, the import of apples from Afghanistan is not exempted from sales tax while grapes, pomegranates and watermelons can be imported without paying sales tax.

The FBR has issued directions to the customs collectors of Peshawar and Quetta in this context. It is to be noted that earlier, the FBR was charging 20 per cent sales tax on the import of fresh fruits from Afghanistan.
