31,331 businesses so far take e-BIN
Around 31,331 businesses have so far taken electronic business identification number (e-BIN) from the National Board of Revenue (NBR) to operate their activities under the value added tax (VAT) and Supplementary Duty Act, 2012.

According to a BSS report, the VAT and Supplementary Duty Act, 2012 will be enforced from July 1 and businesses that are operating import-export activities must take e-BIN from the NBR before June 30.

Activities of businesses that will fail to be registered with NBR by June 30 will automatically be shut down, said an official of NBR.

"Businesses that have annual sale turnover of Tk 3.6 million and above must take e-BIN before June 30 to run their activities," said an official of VAT online project of NBR.

Talking to the news agency, director of VAT online project and member (Customs and VAT Administration) of NBR Md Rezaul Hasan said old businesses having traditional registration and also the fresh ones are taking e-BIN from NBR. The 31,331 businesses that have already taken e-BIN pay almost 90 per cent of the total VAT collected by NBR, he added.

He said re-registration will continue up to June 30 but fresh businesses will be able to take registration any time.

Rezaul Hasan said there are eight lakh businesses under the VAT law, 1991 but the number fall significantly as per the new registration system because businesses have to take separate registration for their operations under traditional system. For example, Bata Shoes have 3,000 registration numbers under traditional system but this company will now be given one e-BIN to run operations, he added.

Any business house can easily take e-BIN by visiting NBR's-Vat.gov.bd- web site, he added.
