The Government of Pakistan recently presented the Budget 2023-24 for Pakistan. A country’s budget is typically decided over a year because it allows for better planning, accountability, and control over government spending. A budget assesses the country’s financial needs, sets policy priorities, and allocates resources accordingly by considering economic conditions, projected growth, and policy objectives for the upcoming year’s revenues and expenses.

Governments rely on revenue sources such as taxes, tariffs, and fees to fund public expenditures. Estimating annual revenues allows policymakers to make informed decisions about taxation levels, potential revenue streams, and economic projections. This information helps determine how much can be allocated to different sectors and programs.

In the last 2-3 years, the real estate sector was doing great before the imposition of heavy taxes on both local and overseas investors. After this, the growth of this sector decreased. Now the government has decided to uplift this sector again by decreasing the taxes on real estate and connected industries.

Budget 2023-24 and Real Estate Pakistan:

As the real estate sector has contributed a lot in the past few years to the economy of Pakistan, the government has decided to cut taxes to increase growth once again. During last year, due to the rise in inflation, investors’ buying power declined, which negatively affected the real estate sector, too, just like any other industry.

Relief for the Construction industry and builders:

In the Budget 2023-24, the government has made many concessions and reduced taxes in the Real Estate sector in Pakistan. The government will provide a 10% tax relief or up to PKR 50 Lac relief on the income of Builders for the next three years. The 10% tax relief will increase the construction of high-rise buildings to use minimum land to achieve maximum facilities under one roof. This tax relief will be provided after July 1st, 2023.

Many industries, including construction materials, are closely related to the real estate sector. The lowering of taxes is made for the sector’s growth as it will increase construction in the country and result in more demand for these materials. Many people waiting for the price decrease to make their own home can now make their dream home cheaply. The budget for 2023-24 has included Cement, Iron, sanitary ware items (fixtures and fittings used in bathrooms and washrooms for sanitation purposes, including bathroom accessories), wiring cables, and other goods in a tax-free zone. No tax will be implemented on these items.

The banks will also provide a discounted tax and interest rate to the people taking out loans for the construction of their homes till 2025. People, commercial builders, and developers constructing their homes from 2023-2025 can get concession prices for the construction materials. With low prices, the construction will be much easier for investors. All this will again lead to the real estate industry’s growth.

Note: All these facilities will be provided only to filers. Non-filers will not be given these tax concessions.

Overseas Pakistani as Real Estate Investors:

The budget 2023-24 offers an inclusive strategy for overseas Pakistanis. The government has abolished the 2% advance income tax for overseas Pakistanis. Previously, they had to pay a 2% advance income tax on selling and buying real estate properties in Pakistan. Now that this tax will be abolished, overseas Pakistanis can easily invest in their home country without paying extra taxes.

The government has opted for this strategy to make the overseas Pakistanis send more foreign remittances to the country as the foreign reserves of the country have hit rock bottom. This strategy provides a win-win situation for both Government and Overseas Pakistani residents.

Previously, overseas Pakistanis could send a limited remittance to the country, a maximum capped at $50,000. The government has lifted this maximum cap to $100,000 now. It can increase the country’s remittances and provide greater flexibility to overseas Pakistanis.
