Dear Omer,

First of all I want to appreciate your efforts for our ACCA community, adn I want to suugest there should also be a specific webinar for sales tax on services as this is a new and very complicated area which has just recently been highlighted by SRB.

Also I have a query that if in our monthly sale tax return we pay our sale tax for a specific invoice but afterwards when we receive payment (like after 2 or 3 months) we find out that our client has with held 100% sales tax and deposited in Government treasury, then can we claim a refund or adjustment from our subsequent sale tax returns? if yes how ?

Best Regards,
Mirza **********g

Dear Haroon Bhai,

It was a very informative session,thanks to you,Ahmed bhai and Omer bhai and ofcourse ACCA.
Please try to arrange practical session like e-filling before SRB and PRA sessions so that we have a good command on practical as well as on theory of sale tax on goods and areas covered in sales tax act as in practical life we must have expertise in theory and more importantly on practical matters.
I hope ACCA will consider my suggestion.

Hello Sir,
I attended your last session on webinar. It was really great to be a part of it.
So i want you to guide me a bit as carrier counselor.As i mentioned there that i am a part of an SME Audit firm so how can I add more in my knowledge and practical experience being a part of it. Should I further go for any other degree and if yes then please do guide. I know my questions are a lot but i hope you would understand as a lot of burden in current market condition. You might remember me from the comment like a Hollywood Movie.
Thanks in advance for the answer.

Dear Reader,

Salam,

May this writeup find you in the best of spirits.

Professional Intro:

You may have already read my general professional introduction. If you haven’t please have a look at:

https://omerzaheermeer.wordpress.com/about/

Major Endeavors/Achievements for ACCA Community:

This is however to briefly introduce some of the brilliant endeavors undertaken for the development of ACCA community and thereby the accountancy profession in Pakistan.

  • Conducted and proposed CPDs particularly focused on taxation and local corporate laws to equip the members, affiliates and students with necessary technical skills in this extremely important area. (View Details )
  • Conducted almost all the taxation CPDs and one-third of the total CPDs for ACCA fraternity.
  • They’ve been phenomenally successful within the ACCA community and well received by the members of other accountancy bodies too, which in itself speaks of the top quality of the offering. The attendees included the top officials of firms, MNCs, businesses and public sector organizations.
  • These trainings have led to a multitude of members getting equipped for and landing job opportunities. The member satisfaction in Pakistan has increased manifolds and the CPD program is taken as a benchmark by the global head office. (View Details)
  • Represented and expedited for ACCA members in Pakistan to formally join the Taxation sector by getting joint events organized between the largest tax bar in Asia, LTBA and ACCA as Chairman Liaison Committee of LTBA.
  • This resulted in increased footprint for ACCA and culminated in an MOU between both bodies signed by ACCA’s Head of Taxation (Global) giving a formal pathway to ACCA members towards the lucrative taxation practice. (View Details)
  • Prior to this achievment, on my return from UK, I became the first ever ACCA to be enrolled as a member of a tax bar in Pakistan. This broke the monopoly of certain accountancy bodies there, created a precedent and opened up doors for ACCA members to join tax bars in Pakistan.
  • Organized collaborations between ACCA and LCCI resulting in ACCA being duly recognized by and included in the committees of LCCI; hence cementing the footprints of ACCA & opening of job opportunities at leading businesses for ACCA members.
  • Represented and/or introduced ACCA at various forums including LCCI, LTBA, MPDD, UET, several think tanks – being on their boards, e.t.c.
  • Moreover, prepared ACCA’s taxation proposals for the joint initiative with LCCI. This was unprecedented as ACCA was the ONLY accountancy body to be involved in this endeavor.
  • Helped organize and represented ACCA at the largest joint pre-budget seminar graced by dignitaries from all major tax bars, chambers, accountancy bodies and even the FBR team. Chairman FBR, the Chief Guest, highly appreciated the ACCA presentation by myself. This led to further enhanced footprint and acceptability of ACCA in Pakistan.  (View Details)
  • Proposed the idea of and assisted in ACCA’s practising liscence program for Pakistan.
  • Became the first ever ACCA practising license holder in Pakistan as a test case to ensure a smooth journey for all ACCA members in Pakistan. (View Details)
  • Similarly, my firm (Millennium Law & Corporate Company) became the Pioneer ACCA practising firm in Pakistan to create a case study for all ACCA members as well as bolstering the ACCA acceptance & footprints amongst professional firms.   (View Details)
  • Mentored a significant number of members, affiliates and students with their professional and personal inquiries, thereby contributing my share in the development of the ACCA community. (View Details)
  • Initiated unprecedented forums for ACCA community to interact with each other and the ACCA officials with ease.
  • Delivered the first ever “Thinking Ahead with ACCA” (a Ted Talk inspired program) on CPEC for enhanced recognition of ACCA in professional circles and increasing awareness of current issues within ACCA community. This is expected to be released soon globally.
  • Chaired ACCA’s Taxation sub-committee and finalized the budget and taxation proposals in an unprecedented manner which will further enhance the recognition of ACCA’s technical prowess amongst the relevant circles.
  • Recognized as a top professional to represent ACCA in the Professional Expert Forum.

These are just a few of the major endeavors, most of which were achieved in a very short span of time without being a part of the MNP.

Recognition by ACCA:

It was followed by few months being an MNP member as ACCA Pakistan in recognition of the outstanding achievements for ACCA community, nominated me as a technocrat member of the MNP. This allowed to further improve the deliverance for the collective benefit of the ACCA community.

Aim:

Therefore as an elected MNP member, I’ll be able to more effectively pursue a lot of positive projects planned for the future, achieving the highest standards of excellence for the benefits of the ACCA community, InshaAllah.
