National Board of Revenue, Bangladesh falls short of July-August fiscal year target

The National Board of Revenue (NBR) of Bangladesh has reported a shortfall in revenue collection for the first two months of the current fiscal year 2023-24, according to provisional data. Despite this, the collection saw a growth of 14.74% compared to the same period in the previous year.

In the July-August period, the NBR collected Tk46,233 crore against a target of Tk50,321 crore, indicating an 8.12% shortfall. The deficit was most pronounced in income tax and value-added tax (VAT) sectors. The income tax collection fell 19.64% or Tk2,958.16 crore short of the target, while VAT collection was 6% or Tk1,144.19 crore below the goal.

However, despite these shortcomings, there were areas of growth. The highest revenue in these two months came from VAT, and customs duty collection from imports and exports increased comparatively. The customs sector even surpassed its target by 0.09%, collecting Tk16,192.12 crore against a goal of Tk16,177.5 crore.

Among the VAT contributors, companies listed under NBR's Large Taxpayers Unit (LTU), including multinational corporations, accounted for approximately 50% of the total VAT collected. These companies saw an increase in VAT contribution by 27.78% to Tk8,589 crore.

The revenue board's target for the entire fiscal year is set at Tk4.30 lakh crores, divided into Tk1 lakh 59 thousand 100 crore from VAT, Tk1 lakh 54 thousand 800 crore from income tax, and Tk1 lakh 16 thousand 100 crore from import-export duty.
