According to reports, HM Shehzad, Chairman of the All Pakistan Motor Dealers Association (APDMA), recently recommended that the government make modifications to the new car policy that would be adopted when the 2021-22 budget is presented.

Electric vehicles:

Electric car imports would be free from VAT, but domestically made electric vehicles will be subject to a 1% sales tax.
The government would also levy a “on money” tax on automobiles that are sold without being registered. “On money” or premium refers to a procedure in which anxious customers with extra funds pay a premium to vehicle dealers in exchange for immediate delivery rather than waiting months.

Tarin proposed measures for electric vehicles during his budget address, saying that the government was supporting the usage and manufacture of electric vehicles to reduce reliance on gasoline, offer inexpensive transportation to the general people, and minimise environmental effect. To achieve these aims, substantial tax relief measures for electric cars were proposed, including a tax exemption on the import of fully knocked down (CKD) kits for local electric vehicle production.

In addition, the sales tax on domestically made electric vehicles was reduced from 17 percent to 1 percent, while the value added tax on imported electric vehicles was eliminated. Electric cars will also be exempt from federal excise taxes. Hanif emphasized that tax breaks and exemptions for electric cars will help to create a more fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly economy.
