Dispatches from cement plants are still facing unrest in Pakistan. The government’s new tax policy has been opposed and has led to continue the continued protests since 1 July.
The All Pakistan Cement Distributors Association (APCDA) has supported the action following the government’s introduction of new tax measures in the federal budget 2019-20. To move forward, APCDA has called a of the association’s general body today to discuss all tax-related matters, ie withholding tax and different taxes imposed on distribution/transportation of cement.
Furthermore, the discussion held between All Pakistan Cement Manufacturers Association with its Taxation Officer and association, and its tax experts would also be discussed. A resolution will then be submitted at the end of the meeting on 17 July 2019 in the office of Federation of Pakistan of Chamber & Industry, Lahore, to work out APCDA’s plan.
