Frequently Ask Questions

We're here to help, from getting you started, to long after you file. Let us help you with all your tax filing needs.

1. How does BeFiler work?
BeFiler is a powerful tool with a user friendly interface that asks simple questions and makes the tax filing process in Pakistan easier. All you have to do is answer with a 'yes' or 'no' and provide basic information like your salary income, taxes paid and investments made etc. Based on your responses, our system works out everything and shows your final tax refund / obligation, as applicable, after adjustment of taxes already paid or withheld.

We've developed checks and balances to ensure that we have gathered every piece of information required to submit your tax return and notify you if something doesn't add up.

Once you've completed the process, you can simply sit back and relax. Our integrated system will proceed to file your return of income, under supervision of tax experts. You will be notified once the process is completed.
2. Why should I use BeFiler when my existing tax consultant is doing the same work for me?
One of the most important principles that we kept in mind while developing this system was to educate individuals on their finances and help them understand where their money is going.

Tax consultants usually file your tax return on their own without any involvement on your part. You are never in control of your tax return and simply rely on the expertise of your consultant.

Once you start filing income tax return using BeFiler, you will realize important details about your finances and ways to save taxes. BeFiler follows a step-by-step process so that you end up filing your return with the correct information. And while you're preparing your tax returns, it will also guide you on various tax credits available to you so that you could save maximum taxes. You also don't need to keep track of past years' information because we keep the information stored in our system for future references.

So, feel free to contact us if you want to learn more about how to apply for taxes in Pakistan.
