Staff Correspondent

Detectives from the government’s VAT Department on Monday found beasts hiding under the cover of three beauty parlours in Dhaka who did not clear due mandatory tax.

The three in Dhaka’s upmarket Gulshan area and initially confirmed that at least Value Added Tax (VAT) worth Taka 3 crores (Taka 30 million) by hiding facts of their businesses in tax papers.

The process to lodge separate cases against them is underway.

Bangladesh’s once lax taxation system is being gradually tightened and frequently such surprise raids are carried out.
