FBR to Charge Point of Sale Fee From Retailers

The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has directed big retailers that the point of sale (POS) service fee of Re 1 per invoice will be collected by the T-1 retailers from their customers.

The FBR has issued instructions regarding the operationalization of SRO 1006(1)/2021 dated 9th August 2021. The FBR stated that a standardized format of the Sales Tax invoice has been issued detailing the “minimum requirements” of the Sales Tax Invoice.

It is informed that the “Invoice No” at the top of the standardized invoice is the “Unique sequential invoice number” as per Sub Rule (5) of Rule 150 ZEB of the Sales Tax Rules 2006 and will portray the Tier-1 retailer’s own sequential invoice number. The FBR invoice number shall be the 18 digits FBR’s fiscal invoice number as per Sub Rule (6) of Rule 150 ZEB of the Sales Tax Rules, 2006.

The FBR had issued an SRO 1006(I)/2021 to issue a standardized format for invoices for the retailers/integrated suppliers.

According to the SRO 1006(I)/2021, the name is required to be recorded when the customer is liable for the tax or credit or invoice value is above Rs. 100,000. The POS Service Fee of Re 1 per invoice shall be collected by the T-1 Retailer from the Customer and shall be deposited along with the monthly Sales Tax return, which is being amended to include a row for “POS Service Fee”.

This row shall be auto-populated by the system based on the invoices generated and recorded at the Board’s computerized System. The POS service fee collected each month shall be deposited by the T-1 Retailer in a separate Head of Account, the FBR said.

Under rule 150ZEB of the Sales Tax Rules, 2006, the registered persons (integrated suppliers) shall install such fiscal electronic device and software, as approved by the Board, available on its website with complete technical instructions for installation, configuration, and integration.

The integrated suppliers shall notify the board, through the computerized system, of all their outlets and the integrated supplier shall register each point of sale (POS) to activate the integration.

Under the standardized format for invoices, the following information inter alia is required to be clearly printed on every invoice issued through all Point of Sale (PoS) systems integrated with the FBR, namely:
