Earlier, National Board of Revenue (NBR) directed the internet giants like Facebook, Google, Youtube and other digital platforms to finish VAT registration to run business in Bangladesh.
NBR took the move with the aim of collecting untaxed money from the online-based advertising which is being siphoned off from the economy, and that is why it asked the companies either set up offices in Bangladesh or appoint agents to pay VAT for running advertisements and other businesses in Bangladesh.
