Kathmandu, February 2
Ncell, which has already paid Rs 4.5 billion out of Rs 22.4 billion remaining CGT liability determined by the Large Taxpayers’ Office (LTO), has asked for permission to allow the company to clear its remaining tax liabilities in four instalments within June, informed Revenue Secretary Sishir Kumar Dhungana at the meeting of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) of the Parliament held today.
As per him, Ncell has sent a letter stating that it will pay Rs 4.54 billion each by the end of March, April, May and June.
