New PTA Taxes (Nov 2022) for iPhone 11, 12, 13, and 14 Series

Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) announced recently that one smartphone purchased from abroad will be exempt from tax under a tax exemption program. The PTA tax on smartphones for retailers who are going to import them in bulk has, on the other hand, been raised again, resulting in a higher price for consumers. I believe it is a fact that the PTA taxes on flagship handsets such as iPhones are incredibly high and a great deal of criticism has been leveled at them from industry experts. The PTA taxes will be a big issue for those of you who want to import iPhones from abroad. The taxes have been mentioned in the table below for those of you who are interested in doing so:

There is a new tax on the iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 series of phones, as well as the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 series of phones. PTA tax is imposed on the iPhone pro and iPhone pro max at the highest percentage with regard to the price of the product. A CNIC is subjected to a higher tax than a passport, as it is evident from the facts given above. It is because of the tax that the overall price of the phone becomes too high for the average person to afford in order to purchase the phone. Due to the fact that only the rich segments of the society will be able to afford it, it will create a disparity in society as it will serve as a marker of what a wealthy person is and will be perceived as being rich by others.
