  • The country’s top tax machinery claims to have received data of the Pakistani nationals who have obtained residence by investments in the United Arab Emirates in a bid to hide their illegal wealth.
  • Earlier, the FBR had also received data from the Federal Investigation Agency about Pakistani nationals’ investments in the UAE, but issued notices in 20-30 cases only and made a recovery of Rs400 million.
  • The FBR’s international taxes wing was scrutinising the data provided by the DLD and it would take a few days to identify the potential tax evaders.
