What is Punjab Revenue Authority (PRA)?

The Punjab Revenue Authority (PRA) is a provincial authority established by the Punjab Revenue Authority Act of 2012. Its purpose is to collect sales taxes on services in the Punjab region. It's important to note that there are two types of sales taxes: taxes on goods and taxes on services. PRA only deals with taxes on services. Almost all service sectors in Pakistan are required to pay taxes to PRA on account of sale tax on services. Sales tax registration is required for almost all service providers, individuals, firms and companies in Punjab. Prior to the 18th amendment, sales tax on services was within the domain of the FBR, but later on, for the purpose of provincial autonomy, it became a provincial domain. Some of the services providers required to pay sales tax to PRA are as follows: Here is a list of some businesses that commonly use consultants:
