NBR’s Q1 revenue collection grows 16pc

The country’s internal tax revenue collection grew by nearly 16 per cent (year-on-year) in the first quarter (Q1) of the current fiscal year despite posting a shortfall of Tk 40.74 billion against the target. The National Board of Revenue (NBR) collected Tk 671.04 billion in tax revenue during the period of July-September against its target of Tk 711.78 billion, according to provisional data released Sunday. Two wings of the NBR — VAT and Customs — achieved more than 16 per cent growth in revenue collection compared to the corresponding period of last year. On the other hand, the income tax wing of the NBR achieved 13.82 per cent growth in the July-September period of the current FY. However, all three wings of the NBR are lagging behind their targets in Q1. Economists said fluctuation in exchange rates in conversion from US dollar to Bangladesh taka and the domestic inflation played a significant role in spurring the tax revenue collection in Q1.
