ISLAMABAD: The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) will brief the Senate Committee on Finance, Revenue and Economic Affairs, during its scheduled meeting on Wednesday, on issues faced by firms in importing solar power generator systems. The board representatives will also brief the senate body about the details of the exemptions provided by FBR to the solar energy sector. The Senate body, during its last meeting, had decided to call the Alternate Energy Development Board (AEDB) and Engineering Development Board (EDB) for the next meeting and clarify tax procedures related to solar powered generator imports. The issue came up for discussion after some stakeholders highlighted problems related to clearance of containers by Customs authorities.
