The tax issue between Shaheen Air International (SAI) and Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) was resolved after a detailed discussion between the two organizations. This was stated by Zohaib Hassan, Director Marketing, SAI while speaking to media after the meeting with FBR.
Zohaib Hassan, Director Marketing, SAI said “The fiscal year is coming to an end due to which there was pressure on us to get the tax dues cleared. The payment was delayed 1 and half months and initially we tried to submit our cheques to clear the payments but somehow FBR was reluctant to accept the offer. But after detailed negotiations, the FBR has accepted Shaheen’s request. This matter was prolonged due to Eid holidays.
We would like to reiterate that Shaheen Air International is a law abiding corporate entity and is aware of our duties and responsibilities. Our regular operations are on and flight schedule is as per normal”.
