To check your National Tax Number (NTN) in Pakistan, you can follow these steps:
- Visit the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) website (www.fbr.gov.pk)
- Click on the “Services” tab located at the top of the homepage
- Select “e-Services” from the drop-down menu
- Click on “NTN Verification”
- Enter your NTN number in the designated field
- Click on “Verify”
You should then see the status of your NTN, including whether it is valid or not.
It’s important to note that an NTN is a unique number assigned to individuals and businesses for the purpose of paying taxes. It is mandatory for businesses to have an NTN, but individuals may also choose to obtain one if they are required to file taxes. If you do not have an NTN or are unsure if you have one, you can apply for one on the FBR website.
To apply for an NTN, you will need to provide certain personal and business information, such as your name, address, contact information, and details about your business activities. You may also be required to submit certain documents, such as copies of your CNIC (Computerized National Identity Card) or passport, and a copy of your sales tax registration certificate (if applicable).
After submitting your application, it will be reviewed by the FBR and you will be notified of the status of your application. Once your NTN is approved, you will receive your NTN certificate which will contain your NTN number.
It’s important to keep your NTN up to date and accurate, as failure to do so can result in fines and penalties. If you need to make any changes to your NTN information, such as your address or business activities, you can do so on the FBR website.
In summary, to check your NTN number in Pakistan, you can visit the FBR website, click on “NTN Verification” and enter your NTN number. If you don’t have an NTN, you can apply for one by providing personal and business information and submitting the required documents. It’s important to keep your NTN information up to date to avoid any fines or penalties.
