The National Board of Revenue (NBR) is looking into the bank accounts details of several real estate companies and their shareholders to see if they have evaded taxes by concealing information.
NBR’s Tax Zone-5 has recently written to various banks seeking information on these 10 companies and their nine directors.
The companies include Building Technology and Ideas Limited, Green Delta Housing and Development (Pvt) Limited, Concrete Development and Consultant Limited, and Biswas Builders.
The directors include Arshi Haider and her daughter Hina Haider of Building Technology; Ramjanul Haq Nihad of Amin Mohammad Foundation; Mukarram Hossain Khan and his wife Jeba Amin Khan of Capital and Development Limited; Amir Hossain and his brother Dildar Hossain of Green Delta Housing; and Biswas Builders Managing Director Nazrul Islam.
The NBR has sought their bank account details between July 1, 2008 and June 30, 2014 on the suspicion they have dodged taxes.
An NBR official, who declined to be identified, told bdnews24.com that their income tax returns gave rise to doubts.
“The information they provided are not compatible with their incomes and properties,” he said.
He said the NBR was looking into their bank account details to ascertain whether there were any anomalies.
