FBR Advance Tax Policy for Sale, Purchase & Installments

FBR Advance Tax Policy - Capital Smart City

The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has imposed an advance tax on all investments of all real estate projects. The taxes are made applicable from 31st October 2022.

The investors evidently have many questions regarding this new policy. This article will cover most of these questions and will help you understand how the FBR Advance Tax Policy will be applicable to your investment.

As the term ” Advance Tax” may seem a dreary one, but it’s not! Advance Tax is not a tax being charged separately on real estate properties. The advance tax you’re required to pay now would be later adjusted to your annual income tax.

Which Investment will pay FBR Advance Tax?

  1. Either you buy or sell a property, you’ll have to pay an FBR Advance Tax.
  2. Tax will also be applicable to the Installments files that have been balloted.
  3. The files that are not balloted shall not pay the tax yet (but only after the files are balloted).

These amounts are subject to change without notice as per any amendments in law, in the percentage of taxes for filers, non-filers, or in the FBR value of properties.

How much FBR Tax do I have to pay?

You can calculate how much tax amount is due on your investment/s without much ado if you read the instructions below carefully.

Before moving on, you need to know the following three things!

FBR Taxation Rate

FBR has set a taxation rate of Rs. 167,000 per marla

FBR Categories of Investments

FBR has categorized all types of investments such as sale, purchase, or payment of installments into the following three categories :

  1. Filer
  2. Non Filer
  3. Overseas or Non Resident

FBR’s Advance Tax Rate for each category

Each category shall pay a specified percentage of the plot/property price as FBR Advance Tax, as in the table below:

CategoryPurchase TaxPayment of Installments TaxSale Tax
Filers and Non-residents2%2%2%

How to calculate the Advance Tax on your property?

  1. Identify the category in which your investment falls, i.e. Filer, Non-filer or Overseas.
  2. Determine the tax rate or percentage applicable to your investment, according to your category i.e. Filer or Non-filer. (Note: Selling and buying would have different tax percentages. See the table above)
  3. Find your Property’s Value: Multiply the taxation rate which is Rs. 167,000 with the No. of Marlas of your property/plot.
    Property Value = 167,000 * No of marlas
  4. Calculate the Advance tax: Multiply that tax percentage by the property’s value.
    Advance Tax = Percentage * (167,000 x No. of Marlas).
  5. The result you get is the FBR Advance Tax that you have to pay.

The complete formula to calculate the FBR Advance Tax is mentioned below:

FBR Advance Tax = Rs. 167,000 x No. of Marlas x Tax Percentage


To further understand it, let’s take an example of the 5 Marla Non-Filer plot you’re going to buy. Note that the Purchase Tax Rate will be applicable to you, so the tax percentage will be 7%.

FBR Tax on 5 Marla Non-Filer = 167,000 x 5 x 7% = Rs. 58,450

The result you get is Rs. 58,450 which is the tax due on your property if you buy it.
