How does the table above calculate taxes?

For every cell phone, these are the various taxes that you will be liable to pay if you are importing a phone through Ali Express or any eCommerce website online.

1. Customs Duty = PKR 250 Fixed

2. Regulatory Duty (Based on phone prices in USD)

  • If $1 to $60 = PKR 250
  • If $61 to $130 = 10% of Mobile value
  • If $130+ = 20% of the Value of the Phone

3. Sales Tax = PKR 1500

4. Additional Sales Tax = 3% Fixed

5. IT Duty = 9%

6. Mobile Levy (based on phone prices in PKR)

if cell phone value is PKR 10,000 to 40,000 = mobile levy will be PKR 1000

If PKR 40,000 to 80,000 = PKR 3000

If Over PKR 80,000 = PKR 5000

7. Provincial Tax = 0.9%

Add the above values and you will get the exact tax value that you’ll have to pay.

Want us to find the applicable tax on a smartphone that is missing in the calculator above?

Simply, comment below the name of the smartphone along with the model, we’ll let you know the tax that you’ll be liable to pay for that smartphone. We’ll also add it to the calculated taxes table above.

Hope you found out the excise duty for the mobile phone you plan to import. We know these rates are high and we think the government should take appropriate steps to minimize these taxes soon.

Make sure you share it with your friends and family!

  11. Asalamoalikum Sir.

    How much duty I have to pay on Lenovo tablets if I have got two tablets as a present on arrival at Islamabad international airport.

    I have got one Android mobile which I have used in Pakistan do I have to pay duty on arrival at isb airport traveling from Dubai

    H I have got one more mobile for personal use which I purchased from Dubai and is not registered..do I have to pay taxes on that as well

    1. Wassalam Sharafat,
      1) TABLETS:
      If both of these do not have SIM slots or connectivity options, then you do not have to worry about anything.
      If they have SIM slots / and are 3g/4g, then you need to pay taxes to register those tablets.
      2) ANDROID MOBILE YOU USED IN PAK:
      No, it would already be paired with your number and no registration needed here, you are good to go.
      3) MOBILE PURCHASED FROM DUBAI:
      You are required to register this phone with PTA.

      Now the overall scenario, if your tablets do not have SIM Slots, you already have one phone that you used here at pak, only 1 remains as unregistered. You’ll have to pay nothing!! As you can bring in 1 mobile device per year that you’ll be able to register free of cost.
      Hope that helped you.
      If you need any further info, you can ask freely.

  12. Hello. I got a cellphone from my friend. I received an SMS that it is not PTA approved. I followed your process and entered an COC. The duty amount is 52 Thousand PKR. I don’t want to pay such amount for a phone which is worth just 10 thousand. I will return it back to my friend. Problem is that now that COC has been registered with my Mobile Number. Do I have to pay the duty?

  24. Dear Editor,

    Please update the tax slab for the phones after the announcement of the budget on 11 June 2019.

    Moreover, kindly keep the old version of the tax calculator to identify the reduction in the taxes for the new devices after last nights budget update.

    Thanks.

  25. It is such a disappointment to see to much taxes on importing a single unit of mobile phone. Our Tax system is more complex than spider web. Why just dont apply a simple sales tax or excise duty?

  26. I am overseas Pakistani. I have iPhone 6 Plus. I will be coming to Pakistan for about 6 months. Do I also have to pay tax?? If yes can u guide me with procedure??

  27. Mr. Fahad Khan
    Hi,
    I want to bring Iphone XR 128 gb ( which in my used ) from Saudi Arabia .
    i will bring mobile with me but when will i go back after 20 days to Saudi Arabia i will leave this mobile to my family use.
    do i have to pay tax for that , if there is tax then how much will that ?

    1. Hello Azam Khan
      iPhone XR is an expensive phone, its better if you do not leave it here, else you’d need to register it with Pta within 60 days and pay a huge amount (around 50K) in order to do that. unfortunately!

    1. I’d recommend not to buy and send it from abroad, as your mobile phone’s price is over $500. You might need to pay over 50K to register it. Not even worth buying it at a discount.

  28. How much tax i have to pay for HTC desire 10.this model is missing from ur calculater.so plz let me know about the tax i have to pay for this model…thank u

  29. Hi Fahad i have mobile already register in Pakistan now i buy new one Samsung A9 in Dubai is it possible to transfer registration from my old mobile to new mobile.Please reply me.

  30. Asalam walekum Dear Fahad
    would like to know that tax of iphone 6S 128gb will be highly appreciated if you can tell me exact amount many thanks

    1. Wassalam
      if you brought it along with yourself from abroad and want to register it on a passport, the tax might be as low as 25k – 30K.
      But as a local Pakistani, tax would be around 38K – 40K.
      Hope that helps

  31. Fahad bhai you’ve done an amazing job …. Just wanna know what tax would my father have to pay when he brings a oneplus 7 pro from abroad (mind that he hasn’t registered any.phone on his passport yet) thank you

    1. Hello Saqib,
      Thanks for commenting!
      Unfortunately, Yes! Due to the misuse of the “Baggage Facility” (Which was basically to allow 1 phone per passenger and register it free of cost through DIRBS portal).

  32. Hi,
    I want to bring iPhone X 64 GB with me. Its my personal phone purchased from outside of Pakistan. Can you tell me how much tax I have to pay to get it “registered” on PTA?

  33. What will be the amount of tax on note 10…nd if I bring only 1 mobile with me on arrival…so how can I know that it is pta verified??
