Communicating Members’ Voices – Meeting with ACCA CEO

Communicating Members’ Voices – Meeting with ACCA CEO

Dear Readers,

Peace be on you all,

Had a very productive meeting with Ms. Helen Brand, CEO of ACCA, the largest global accountancy body in human history. In all my interactions, I’ve always found her to be very articulate and a methodical professional, yet at the same time being a very humble and friendly person.

Vital proposals regarding ACCA fraternity and brand, culminated from the feedbacks of the members and the collective wisdom of representatives, were shared and discussed at length with her and Sundeep Takwani. Sundeep is also an impressive professional.

Although it was peak period professionally, the importance of advocacy and contributing to my Alma-mater & wider society meant that I took extra time off work. And it was well worth it. The contents of the discussions were confidential, but let me share that ACCA believes in Thinking Ahead so look forward to the exciting times and initiatives ahead.

FREE CONSULTATION: The Foreign & Domestic Tax Amnesty 2018 – EXTENDED till 31/07/18

Golden Opportunity for you & the Country:

With the OECD data sharing re tax avoidance and black monies looming closer along-with the threat of severe implications, the recent amnesty by Government of Pakistan appears to be a golden opportunity for those with assets/income without proper trail.

Due to the administrative and legal issues getting clarified only about a couple of weeks ago, the response to Amnesty didn’t really took off until the last two weeks. And was it some response?

It was phenomenal particularly compared with the last few amnesties. Even for the country, with its’ economy currently in a dire strait, this seems to be providing a much needed breather while the nation awaits the next Government to take charge and hopefully steer the economy in the right direction. Moreover, it may help increase the documentation of the economy which seems to be a lost cause to date despite immense expense by FBR.

While it maybe a great opportunity for, it does require a lot of care and proper planning. We can proudly offer you complete confidentiality, competence and commitment with a proven track record of 100% excellence to back it up over four (4) decades of firm history.

Taxation & Amnesty Announcement by the PM of Pakistan

Dear Readers,

Assalam O Alikum (Peace be on you)!

The above-titled announcement has two parts:

  1. Taxation reforms (focused on individuals/salaried class)
  2. Amnesty scheme

While the reforms part covers a smaller section of the much needed greater structural reforms and a positive step, the amnesty scheme leaves much to be desired.

Awaiting for the detailed legal draft for a considered opinion. Keep reading this space for more, Insha Allah!
