Punjab Revenue Authority (PRA) held a meeting on Tuesday with the executive members of Lahore Restaurant Association (LRA) to introduce the Electronic Invoice Monitoring System (EIMS) to the restaurants. PRA’s team said in the meeting that complete implementation of EIMS would facilitate and systemize the tax system at both ends – Restaurants and PRA.
From PRA, Additional Commissioner Ifra Tabassum, Enforcement Officer/Staff Officer to Commissioner Omer Farooq, Enforcement Officer Furqan Hafeez, Audit cum Risk Compliance Officer Mohsin Mehmood and Assistant Director (IT) Adeel Tariq attended the meeting.
LRA members, expressing their concerns in the meeting, said that the restaurants had been facing multiple issues during the Covid-19 days. They also said that ‘PRA keeps sending unwanted tax letters to the restaurants that is very unjust on the part of the authority’.
PRA’s representatives ensured the LRA members that the authority would facilitate the Restaurant Industry and try to execute everything according to the law. PRA’s team, at the end of the meeting, requested all the LRA members to ensure the use of EIMS to minimize the issues of taxation in the restaurants.
