KARACHI: Hearing a Sindh Sales Tax Reference Application (SSTRA) filed by Sindh Revenie Board, an appellate bench of High Court of Sindh (SHC) comprising Justice Aqeel Ahmed Abbasi and Justice Nazar Akbar on Monday ordered issuance of notices to respondent IGI Finance Securities Limited for an unspecified date.

The petitioner impugned an order passed by Income Tax Appellate Tribunal which restrained the appellant from collecting Services tax. The appellant maintained in the SSTRA that the respondent company provides investment advisory service and thus is liable to pay services tax.

The bench after hearing Ghulam Hyder Shaikh advocate, counsel for the appellant department ordered issuance of notices to the respondent company.
