On the issue of reform, the FBR chairman told businessmen there that the demands for reforms are now coming from elsewhere.

He stressed the need to bring the economy on paper and said, "As an accountant, I would like to advise you to pressure the government for reforms and documentation. For three to four generations, only businesses that run documents.

He asked the traders to come up with an effective solution on how to collect taxes from them in the coming budget.

The FBR chairman said: "It has been learned that many factories in Lahore's Sunder Industrial Estate are not registered with the sales tax department. Can we afford that, tax exemption on local sales of export-dependent industries in the world is not given? '
