A Complete Guide to Calculating PTA Tax on an Iphone 13 Pro Max
The PTA tax, commonly known as regulatory duty, applies to mobile phones in Pakistan. An iPhone 13 Pro Max’s PTA tax is calculated based on several variables, including its price, kind, and other unique features. To figure out PTA tax on an iPhone 13 Pro Max, follow these steps:
- By visiting an authorized store or Apple’s website, you can find out how much the iPhone 13 Pro Max costs.
- Verify the PTA tax rate: The Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA) determines the tax rate, which is subject to cyclical adjustment. Tax rates for imported mobile phones are 17% as of the deadline (2023).
- Determine the PTA tax amount: Simply multiply the price of the iPhone 13 Pro Max by the PTA tax rate to determine the tax amount. For instance, the PTA tax would be Rs. 250,000 x 1500, or Rs. 375,000, if the price of the iPhone 13 Pro Max is Rs. 250,000.
- Establish the customs value, which is the price of the phone as estimated by customs officials or declared by the importer.
- Determine the basic tax, which is currently 20% of the customs value and is calculated as a percentage.
- Calculate the additional tax, which is currently fixed at PKR 500 and charged on mobile phones.
- Total Tax = Basic Tax + Additional Tax
Please be aware that the procedures above are merely examples, and that the actual sum may change depending on the price of the iPhone 13 Pro Max and the PTA’s current tax rate. The PTA should always be contacted for the most recent information on PTA tax.
