KARACHI: Pakistan Customs has started collection of Sindh stamp duty on real-time basis through computerized system WeBOC.
The Sindh Stamp Duty Collection Module of WeBOC had been rolled-out from mid night of the New Year. In the module, Rs1,000 will be charged as Sindh Stamp Duty to be payable against goods declaration (GD) on one-time basis at the time of making upfront payment.
The amount of stamp duty payable will be reflected in the cess challan screen; however, under a separately designated Head of Account for which a separate pay order or cash amount, as the case may be, would, therefore, be required. For GDs with claim of exemption from Stamp Duty Payment, the mechanism would remain the same as for Cess payment.
