Telco officials meet Muhith over tax cut

Top officials of mobile operators yesterday urged Finance Minister AMA Muhith to consider some tax related issues in the next fiscal year.

They requested Muhith to wave the current Tk 600 SIM (subscriber identity module) tax.

They also called upon the minister to review the proposal of increasing supplementary duty from 20 percent to 30 percent on import of SIM cards, and the proposal of raising duty from 3 percent to 30 percent on software import.

The officials also demanded review of the proposal of imposing 2 percent tax at source on mobile bill.

Mahmudur Rahman, executive vice president of Robi, said the minister has assured them of considering some of the issues.

Earlier the finance minister had said the government might review the 2 percent tax at source on mobile bill as such tax would affect the low-income mobile users.
