Taxes included in any PESCO bill
After making PESCO a government business entity, now PESCO collects different types of taxes from its consumers. All the taxes are eventually then deposited in the government’s account. Below is the list of all the taxes that are included in your bill when you make a PESCO bill payment.
E.D is the electricity duty that they include in the total bill of all the units consumed by the customers in a month.
In the PESCO bill, they include a TV fee of rupees 35 for residential consumers and a total of 60 rupees for commercial customers. This fee is only for 1 TV, if there is more than one TV in the vicinity, this fee will be multiplied by the total count.
GST stands for General Sales Tax, calculated by adding the total variable bills and 17% of the total bill.
This tax is applied to all PESCO customers whether they’re residential or commercial. Those who use more than or equal to 1000 units of electricity in one month, will have to pay income tax.
Commercial consumers also pay a sales tax in their total PESCO bill.
FPA is Fuel Price Adjustment that all the power supplying companies collect from their customers who produce electricity from crude oil. FPA tax keeps changing according to the fuel prices in the country and the international market.
QTR Tariff Adj. / DMC
This tax is applied to all residential consumers after every 3 months. A quarterly Tariff adjustment tax amount is added to your bill when you cross the limit of 300 units in three months.
Tariff Rationalization Surcharge is added to the commercial electricity users’ bills because of the laws defined by NEPRA. If it is positive, then the government pays this tax to PESCO on your behalf as a subsidy by the government. But if it is negative, then the power supplying company pays this surcharge to the government of Pakistan.
FC is the financial cost added to your bill to collect 0.43 paisa per unit from all commercial and residential consumers. Basically, this surcharge is collected to maintain the debt servicing from the power supplying private limited.
The deferred amount is the total disputed amount between the customers and the company. They keep it inside the deferred box until the court orders a conclusion about it.
