FBR Increase Property Rates From 10% to 100% in Pakistan

The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has increased the prices of immovable properties after the time period of 2 and a half years in 40 cities of the country. The immovable properties include the real estate properties. Under the change in valuation process, some cities have seen the price increase of 10% to 15% while other cities have featured the 100% increase in property prices. This revision will be effective from December 1, 2021.

FBR Increase Property Rates From 10% to 100% in Pakistan

FBR has determined the increase in the market value of the immovable properties in the exercise of the powers conferred by Sub-section (4) of Section 68 of the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001, and in supersession of its notifications.

The increase in property rates are used to determine the taxes applied on the sale and purchase of the properties. This will increase the overall prices of the properties.

Cities Eligible of Increase in Valuation of Property:

At least 13 new cities from Punjab, three from Sindh, two from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and one from Balochistan have been included on the list of the cities of Pakistan where FBR valuation is used for taxation purposes. The FBR has enhanced the market value of residential and commercial immovable properties located in the following mentioned cities:

  • Attock,
  • Bahawalnagar,
  • Bahawalpur,

Basis of Increase in Prices:

This increase is done on per Marla, per square yard or by per square feet basis in some cities. In Karachi, the per square yard price of an A-1 category residential plot has been increased by PKR 31,000. The rates for buildings with two stories or more have been increased by 25%. The per square yard price of ready to move in residential properties has been increased by PKR 43,000. Similarly, the valuation of commercial open plots, commercial ready-to-move-in properties, and residential apartments has also been revised upward.

Effect on Property Prices and Demand:

The rates of property were ever increasing since the last 10 months. Affordable deals of investment in residential and commercial sector were launched to ensure that investors from different financial backgrounds could easily invest or make their dream home in a sophisticated society. But this is now very difficult as the prices have increased a lot and investors can’t afford to invest anymore as the buyers will decrease. Due to decrease in demand, prices of the properties will also decrease.

Effect on Investors and Real Estate Agents:

The increase in prices is not appreciated by the investors. The investors cannot invest in very expensive property. The investment capacity will decrease.

The increase in prices of real estate properties will also adversely affect real estate agents. The real estate agents help investors to invest in best properties in best rates and charge a percentage on every deal. When the investors will not invest in the properties, it will become difficult for real estate agent to earn too. The extra amount will be given to government as taxes and real estate agents are not liking this fact.
