The Tax of your mobile depends on the market value of the phone and Dollar rate. Let’s find how much Tax you have to pay to PTA if your mobile is blocked.
Tax Calculation List For Mobile Phones In Pakistan
|Serial No||Mobile actual price||Applicable tax|
|3||USD 200- 350||Rs7,200|
|5||more than USD 500||Rs40,390|
Mobile actual Price means the Price of mobile in the international market, it’s not the price on which you have bought the old phone.
For Example, Samsung S8 is available at Rs.30, 000 in the market in used condition, but 30,000 is not its actual price. The actual price is USD 350.00 which is PKR 58,642.50
