Country financial analysis

The statutory corporate income tax rate in Pakistan is 29%. The increase in revenues was mainly because of a 46% rise in the regulated price of fuel during the year. The rise in stated capital of around $64 million, compared with 2021, was the result of issuing additional share capital at a share premium, as well as the sharp increase in the value of the US dollar against the Pakistani rupee throughout the year.
