The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) recently announced a tax exemption on one smartphone bought from abroad. However, on the other side, the PTA tax for retailers who want to import smartphones in bulk has been increased again. The PTA taxes on the flagship handsets like iPhones are exorbitant and experts from the industry have criticized them a great deal. Anyway, those of you who wish to import iPhones from abroad will have to pay hefty PTA taxes.
