Kohat: Launched for taxpayers’ facilitation and tax acculturation in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, a registration week of KPRA concluded in Kohat on Friday.
The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Revenue Authority (KPRA) provided instant registration facility to unregistered business owners associated with services sector in Dera Ismail Khan, Karak and Kohat in the weeklong drive conducted on the special directive of Director General KPRA Fayyaz Ali Shah.
The USAID-KPRM provided assistance to KPRA to successfully conduct the drive.
Over a hundred new taxpayers were registered and dozens more were identified during the campaign in which teams of KPRA including Deputy Collectors, Inspectors and Facilitation officers visited the business premises of potential taxpayers for awareness and providing instant registration facility.
