ISLAMABAD: A Division Bench of the Islamabad High Court on Wednesday relisted a customs matter for hearing filed by M/s Sun Diplomatic Bonded Warehouse Private Limited against the Customs Appellate Tribunal Islamabad.
The IHC bench, comprising of Justice Athar Minallah and Justice Mian Gul Hassan, relisted the matter to be heard later.
M/s Sun Diplomatic Bonded Warehouse Private Limited had challenged an announcement of the tribunal in the IHC.
Meanwhile, Justice Aamer Farooq issued fresh notices to parties regarding assisting the court on the matter of M/s Sun Diplomatic Bonded Warehouse Private Limited.
The appellant had challenged the act of recovery of said amount by Commissioner Inland Revenue of Large Taxpayer’s Unit Islamabad.
ATIR was also made respondent in the case as the tribunal had upheld the departmental decision regarding the issuance of show cause notice and demand of recovery of outstanding tax amount under the head of federal excise duty.
M/s Sun Diplomatic Bonded Warehouse Private Limited had prayed the court that the FBR office had issued a recovery notice to the company which did not hold lawful grounds.
The appellant had prayed the court to declare the act as illegal and without any lawful authority and an interim stay may be granted against the recovery proceedings.
M/s Sun Diplomatic Bonded Warehouse Private Limited had also mentioned that departmental obligations were not met amid processing the notice of recovery demand while later the adjudication did not redress the grievances of the appellant.
