Sindh Government Increases Sales Tax on Wedding Halls, Restaurants, and Cafes

Karachi: The Sindh government has raised the provincial sales tax from 13 to 15 percent, effective July 1, 2024. This hike, included in the recently passed budget for the fiscal year 2024-25, impacts a variety of businesses, including restaurants, hotels, and wedding halls.

Under the revised tax structure, restaurants, cafes, bakeries, and hotels will now be subject to a 15 percent sales tax. The same rate applies to guest houses, farmhouses, clubs, and wedding halls.

Additionally, transactions made via credit card will attract an 8 percent sales tax, while cash payments will incur the full 15 percent sales tax. This adjustment aims to increase provincial revenue and streamline the tax system across various sectors.
