ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) will resume the hearing of M/s Dewan Cement Limited’s tax reference challenging a recovery claim made by field office of the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) on Tuesday (today).
An IHC bench comprising Justice Aamer Farooq would hear the case. M/s Dewan Cement Limited had filed the reference challenging a show cause notice issued by the Large Taxpayers Unit, Islamabad.
M/s Dewan Cement Limited submitted before the court that the impugned order was issued under mala fide intentions and had no legal standing or authority and the court may decide on relief which it deemed appropriate in this regard. It also stated that due legal course was not followed by the department in issuing the order.
M/s Dewan Cement Limited had also prayed the court to decide the case early as the appellant had to bear financial complications after the case. M/s Dewan Cement Limited had also mentioned that departmental obligations were not met amid processing the notice of recovery demand while later the adjudication did not addressed grievances of the appellant.
ATIR, Federal Board of Revenue (FBR), officers of LTU including Commissioner Inland Revenue, and others were made respondent in the case.
The bench had also heard the case during last week and adjourned hearing on the matter after hearing brief arguments by the parties.
