Federal Budget 2023-2024: Tax On Luxury Items Is Tipped To Remain Unchanged

Back in February, the government smashed 25pc tax on luxury items in the mini-budget. It seems that now it has decided to make it part of the Finance Bill. According to the latest reports, the federal government is predicting to generate Rs 45 to 55 billion in revenue from the sales tax on luxury items.

In addition to that, the government is considering increasing its duty on mobile phones as well. It is expected to be worth more than 500 dollars in the next budget. However, the Federal government has decided to keep 25pc sales tax on imported electronic items. The point worth mentioning here is that the 25 sales tax will remain unchanged on imported cosmetic items for women including makeup, hairdryers, hair straighteners, hair colors, hair vitamins, creams, and others. Other luxury items on which 25% sales tax will be kept include imported branded shoes, branded purses, imported sunglasses and perfumes, branded headphones, iPods and speakers, imported doors and windows, imported bath fittings, imported tiles, and sanitary, sunglasses, shampoo, soaps, lotions, shaving gels, lights, carpets, and others.
