Introduction
Overview of Financial Sector A sound and well functioning financial sector is essential to support economic growth of a country. Pakistan possess a wide range of financial institutions; commercial banks, specialized banks, national savings schemes, insurance companies, development finance institutions, investment banks, stock exchanges, corporate brokerage houses, leasing companies, discount houses, microfinance institutions and Islamic banks. They offer a whole range of products and services both on the assets and liabilities side.

The current structure of the financial sector in Pakistan is the result of several policy shifts and developments. Like many other developing countries, Pakistan also undertook the process of financial restructuring through reforms in early 1990s to establish a more marketbased system of financial intermediation and Government financing, conduct the monetary policy more efficiently through greater reliance on indirect instruments and increase the contribution to the rapid development of the stock markets.

During the last few years, financial markets and institutions in Pakistan have witnessed significant changes in terms of consolidation as well as diversification. Since 2000, more than 40 transactions of mergers and acquisitions have been executed within banks and between banks and non-bank finance companies. On the other hand, a number of banks/development financial institutes as well as their holding groups have expanded their activities into the areas where the banks hitherto were either not allowed or not interested. These include insurance, asset management, brokerage, leasing and other non-banking finance services essentially through separate entities. Along with financial services, various groups that control different banks have also stakes in non-financial/real sector of economy.

State Bank of Pakistan (the central bank of the country) is the sole supervisory and regulatory authority of Commercial Banks, Islamic Commercial Bank, Development Financial Institutions (DFIs), Micro Finance Banks and foreign exchange companies in Pakistan. The remaining financial institutions are monitored by other authorities, such as the Securities and Exchange Commission. (Pervez, 25th February 2011)

Opportunity A good scope in Islamic Banking More focus on CASA Deposit There is a room to go in global market. Low exposure to consumer banking providing opportunity to explore the segment. The year 2010 will prove to be another demanding year for the bank with scattered diversification, innovation and mission driven approach are the key to success which bank should adopt. Progressive but cautions business expansion with strategic branch network extension and introduction of innovative products in all areas of business. Branch network need extension.

SBP policy to allow Islamic banking business separately. Bank introduces Islamic banking in country that attracts large number of people. Greater profitability can be achieved through strong internal control. New scheme for deposits and finances should be introduced regularly. Opportunity to open branch in ruler area and other provinces to increase its branch network.

Challenges Adverse impact of Credit Crisis can badly effect on HMB. Facing a strong competition by its competitors and high reliability on only one market segment i.e. Textile (55%). Inconsistency in government policies. Increasing competition in the banking sector. Entry of many foreign banks Geopolitical condition of country.

Impact of Budget FY12 on Banking Industry


A. INCOME TAX ORDINANCE, 2001

1. Carry forward of excess provisions of advances for consumer and SMEs clarified; lower of actual provisions or at prescribed limit to be deductible

[Rule 1(c)] seventh schedule of income tax ordinance, 2001

The amendments introduced in Rule 1(c) through Finance Act, 2009 changed the mechanism for allowability of provision for advances and off balance sheet items and the admissibility was disconnected from general provisions contained in sections 29 and 29A. These provisions provided allowability upto a maximum of 1 per cent of the total advances with a condition that actual provision, if in excess of 1 per cent, would be allowed to be carried over to succeeding years.

Through Finance Act, 2010, an amendment was introduced in this provision and separate allowability at 5 per cent of total advances to Consumers and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) was prescribed. In view of the fact that no corresponding amendment was made in that part of the provision which prescribed the amount eligible for carry over, the tax authorities were interpreting these provisions to restrict carry forward at 1 per cent of total advances including those to consumers and SMEs.

The Bill proposes to rectify the above explained anomaly with effect from July 1, 2010 confirming thereby that the earlier omission was inadvertent.

Consequently, while provisions for advances and off balance sheet items will be admissible to the following extent with effect from July 1, 2010, the excess provisions, if any, would remain eligible for carry over to be deducted against taxable income of succeeding tax year(s):1 (I) 1 per cent of advances; and (II) 5 per cent of advances to consumers and SME

2. Dividends received from asset Management Company

[Rule 6] seventh schedule of income tax ordinance, 2001

Presently, dividend income of a banking company is taxed at 10 per cent. It is now proposed that tax rate on dividend income that is received by a banking company from its asset management company (AMCs) is increased to 20 per cent.

3. PAYMENT OF ADVANCE TAX ON CAPITAL GAINS FROM SALE OF SECURITIES

[Section 147(5B)] of income tax ordinance, 2001

Adjustable advance tax on capital gains from sale of securities shall now be payable within a period of twenty one days after the close of each quarter as against a period of seven days previously prescribed under the Ordinance. Consequently, such advance tax shall have to be paid out by the following dates:

QUARTER PAYMENT DATE September December March June October 21 January 21 April 21 July 21

4. WITHHOLDING TAX ON CASH WITHDRAWALS

[Part IV - Division VI] first schedule of income tax ordinance, 2001

The withholding tax rate on cash withdrawals is proposed to be reduced from 0.3 to 0.2 Per cent of the gross amount of withdrawal. The currently applicable limit of per day cash withdrawal upto Rs 25,000 remains intact.

Page 12

B. SINDH SALES TAX ON SERVICES ACT, 2011

The Sindh Sales Tax on Services Act, 2011 (Act), which is effective from July 1, 2011, enables the Sindh Government to charge and collect Sales Tax (ST) on services, which were previously chargeable to tax under Table II of the First Schedule to the Federal Excise Act, 2005 (FED Act).

This provision enables the Sindh Government to charge and collect Sales Tax (ST) on Services provided by banking companies or nonbanking financial companies at 16 Per cent of the charges.

EXPLANATION: The banking industry is perceived to be totally ignored in the new budget with the latter inching towards 2005 and 2008-like crashes masterly on the back of daily low volumes that were unprecedented during the past eight years. Whereas the budget-makers appeared to have poured cold water on positive expectations of investors at the volumes-starved Karachi Stock Exchange (KSE) regarding the unpopular Capital Gains Tax (CGT), the cash-strapped Islamabad has, in the new financial plan, hinted that it would continue to rely on the banking system for budgetary borrowings during FY12.

The Budget FY12 measures for the banking sector include 0.1 reduction in withholding tax (WHT) on pay orders, demand drafts, maintenance of the taxation rate on corporate and investments in the government papers, permission for the banks to carry over of provisioning in excess of five percent on their loans to consumers and SMEs and 10 percent increase in tax rate on dividends received by the banks from the Asset Management Companies (AMCs). According to market observers, the cash-strapped governments sustained reliance on local sources for financing 84 percent of its Rs850 billion budget deficit would mean more dependency on the local bank and non-bank borrowings. That would keep the interest rate high and resultantly the Net Interest Margin (NIM) would also remain strong. In FY12 the economic managers would have to play a balancing game to meet the ambitious Rs849 billion, four percent of GDP, fiscal deficit target at one end, while providing impetus to the economic recovery to achieve the 4.2 percent GDP growth target.

The banks would be seeing their deposit base slightly improving on the back of a reduced WHT, whereas the carryover of bad-debts in excess of five percent would also prove slightly positive for the banking sector.

Page 13

About 10 percent tax increase on the dividends of AMCs is expected; the analysts said the move was unlikely to unveil any major impact owing to a nominal size of investment in the companies. This fiscal measure has apparently been proposed in order to discourage the practice of arbitrage by banks for receiving dividends from its AMCs.

This means that banks will be investing in funds then they need to hold their investment for more than one year to minimize their tax liability as the CGT on banks for more than a year is 10 percent which is less than 20 percent on dividends imposed in this budget.

The Finance Bill FY12 envisages the individual investors to keep paying the long-resented 10 percent tax on their capital gains as well as the banks, insurance companies, mutual funds and other corporations would also continue to pay the CGT as per their specific rules.

All the new budget means for the CGT-hit corporate sector is a two-week extension in the deadline for their quarterly filling. No major changes have been made on the turnover tax on shares trading and taxes on the stock brokers.

Impact of Budget 2011-12 on Habib Metropolitan Bank (HMB) financials


1. The Finance Bill clarified the position of carry forward of excess provision of advances for consumers and SMEs, which enables Habib Metropolitan Bank to carry forward provision in excess of 5 per cent to succeeding years in order to get maximum benefit. This means that excess provision of current year will not be lost and can be deductible from income in succeeding years while computing income tax of the bank. Thus Profit before tax (PBT) of the succeeding years will be lowered by the excess carry forward provision which results in lowered tax liability and increase in the Net Profits. This proves slightly positive for the banking sector. 2. Presently, Habib Metropolitan Bank doesnt have its Asset Management company therefore the related provision of the law has not affected this bank.

3. The payment of adjustable advance tax on capital gains from sale of securities shall now be payable within a period of twenty one days after the close of each quarter as against a period of seven days previously prescribed under the Ordinance. This Provision relaxes Habib Metropolitan Bank to Pay CGT from sale of securities at the latter date as mentioned above.

4. After amendment of withholding provision, Habib Metropolitan bank has to withhold tax at 0.2 Per cent (previously 0.3 Per cent) on cash withdrawals. The currently applicable limit of per day cash withdrawal is upto Rs 25,000. This doesnt affect the banks profitability as the bank is the withholding agent and it has to pay the withhold tax to the government treasury. The Bill however does not proposes any reduction in rate of tax collection on transactions in banks covered in section 231AA (e.g. sale against cash any instrument including Demand Draft, Pay Order, CDR, STDR, SDR, RTC or any other instrument of bearer nature etc.) which shall continue to be at 0.3 percent.2

5. Reference to Sindh sales tax on services act, 2011, the Concerned Bank has to pay Sales tax on services at 16 Per cent to Sindh government which results in increase in overall tax liability of the bank which also affects the profitability of the bank. The increase in the tax liability will decrease the companys Profit margins.
