Befiler is Pakistan’s largest and only digital tax filing platform offering a truly digital NTN registration and tax filing experience. It provides its services, and additional support through calls, live chat, and WhatsApp to its clients.

This partnership highlights Befiler’s wide acceptance and credibility in Individual and Business sectors alike. Befiler believes that through the use of technology and its digital platform, the entire ecosystem of tax filing and compliance can be automated, making it easy and simple for taxpayers leading to a greater number of citizens becoming compliant.

Bringing a digital solution to the business community is a move in the right direction, given the scope for growth, systematic reforms, and bringing agility to processes through the use of technology. On the occasion of the signing ceremony, Muhammad Idrees, President KCCI, said, “We are excited to have partnered with Befiler. The incredible ease in the previously tiresome process brought forward by Befiler will allow us to help in promoting tax compliance for businesses and their employees.”

“The ten-minute exercise of becoming a filer will allow thousands of individuals and businesses to consider becoming compliant without fearing the complexity and heavy charges associated with the process,” he elaborated. He further added, “We are thankful for the discounted offering by Befiler to our members that goes to show their commitment to promoting the tax compliance culture in Pakistan.”

Akbar Tejani, CEO Befiler, expressed his views saying, “The idea behind making Befiler was to address the low tax collection in Pakistan. The documentation culture is yet to find its roots in a large portion of our population, as there is a reluctance to file tax returns even when the taxes are already being paid in advance by the business community.”

“Another important aim of Befiler is to allow the dissemination of tax-related knowledge and guidance to engage and empower more and more people with the process so they can benefit from becoming compliant,” he added.
