The team opined that the main problem of the corporate sector at present is the governance.The ICSB members have been serving the corporate sector as Company Secretary, CFO, Board Director and in many senior positions and contributing significantly in the economy management. They are implementing budget, providing and assisting the company to pay taxes in order to make the company compliant so that the company could continue its business as agood corporate citizen.

He has put forward some suggestions to NBR for its consideration in framing the upcoming national budget. He emphatically stressed that at this stage of economy NBR is a leading agent of development instead of being just a revenue collecting tool of the government. Therefore, NBR’s policies and procedures should be directed towards economy management to achieve the desired level of economic target.

Mr. Muzaffar suggested that the NBR should frame the upcoming budget keeping in view the fact that the economy is now in a transitional point where the government is striving to upgrade the economy with better quality of life, social safety net development, public health, infrastructure development supported by soft infrastructure.

The services of these institutes may be increasingly utilized through policy support, like using the services of members in income tax, VAT collecting agent, Tax practices and giving them some authorities to take the responsibility to support NBR in revenue calculation and collection.He suggested that NBR should recognize these three institutionsas quasi-NBR Institutions with general and specific responsibilities. He categorically mentioned that the ICSB members although allowed to work in the VAT sector, but still they are not recognized for tax practices; and suggested that NBR has nothing to lose if the ICSB members are allowed to practice tax and other related issues. Therefore, the ICSB team drew special attention of NBR towards the above issue.
