Nora Fatehi’s appearance at Dhaka event creates new problem


Entertainment Report :
The participation of Bollywood’s popular artiste Nora Fatehi at an event in Dhaka has hit a new problem now. The VAT department of National Board of Revenue (NBR) on Tuesday said the organisers did not take permission from its field office to hold the cultural event with the actress and deposit the bank guarantee in line with rules to hold such events involving ticket sales.
In a letter to the field office, the VAT department said VAT and supplementary duty is applicable for such events and the organisers should take permission as per VAT rule.
The letter also said no such commercial event can be held in violation of the rule. The Bollywood artiste is scheduled to arrive in Dhaka on November 18 to shoot a documentary on Global Achievers Award titled ‘Women Empowerment in Bangladesh.’
The latest developments followed a recent move by the income tax wing of the NBR requesting the home, cultural affairs and other agencies to ensure payment of source tax on the honorarium and other expenses for Bollywood actress Nora Fatehi.
