Hi everyone! I hope you are all doing well. Welcome back to another blog. This article will discuss the topic in detail “NCCPL Collect Super Tax on Gains”. The National Clearing Company of Pakistan Limited (NCCPL) will collect the Super Tax on capital gains when certain securities are sold.

A tax expert stated that individuals who earn income from selling certain securities must pay taxes on their capital gains. The National Clearing Company of Pakistan Limited (NCCPL) is responsible for collecting these taxes. Additionally, individuals earning such income must pay Super Tax along with their annual tax return.

The proposal suggests collecting Super Tax on the profits made from selling those securities listed in the Eighth Schedule, using NCCPL. Tax experts also mentioned that the Super tax, introduced in the Finance Act of 2022 through section 4C, required taxpayers to pay the tax together with their return. These changes will applied from 1st July 2023.

The Government introduced a Super tax on high-earning individuals through the Finance Act 2022. People had to pay this tax when filing their tax returns. For certain specified sectors, a higher rate of 10 percent was applicable only for the tax year 2022. Additionally, banking companies were subject to a 10 percent super tax for the tax year 2023.

Various individuals filed Constitution Petitions in different High Courts questioning the implementation of the super tax and the raised rate for specific sectors in the tax year 2022. The Sindh High Court made a ruling stating that the super tax does not apply for the tax year 2022, and the increased rate, surpassing 4 percent, was deemed invalid on the grounds of discrimination. The Supreme Court is currently reviewing this decision.
