As smartphones have a successful market in Pakistan, the taxes on imports and PTA approval are also soaring. So, look at the PTA Tax on iPhone 14 series.

Reasons of Increase in Taxes

PTA Tax on iPhone 14

The recently announced PTA Tax on iPhone 14 is 20% of the actual price of the phone. PTA is frequently increasing the tax rates on imported phones for many reasons which will contribute to the stabilization of the economy. By raising the taxes, the government aims to lower the imports which can help in maintaining the balance of payment. The increased taxes will boost the revenue of the government. Additionally, the growing taxes on imported phones will discourage their sales so the buyers will tend to buy locally-made smartphones. It is done so to promote local manufacturers. The PTA tax also helps in tracking the smuggled phones in the country.

But, the iPhone is not just a simple smartphone, it has become a status symbol for all. The taxes may discourage the bulk sales by retailers who import stock of phones for the resale purposes. But, the individual buyers, who have customer loyalty, are a trend to buy it even after the ever-increasing PTA Tax on iPhone 14. After the above tax rates, iPhone 14 has crossed the price limit of 5 lacs which makes them only for the elitist class. The middle class or lower middle class can not even think of buying such expensive phones during this challenging inflation.
