The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has made it easier for Association of Persons (AOPs) in Pakistan to register for their National Tax Number (NTN) by introducing an online registration process. This move towards digitalization is a step forward in making the tax registration process more efficient and convenient for AOPs. In this article, we will guide you through the step-by-step process of registering for an online NTN for AOPs in Pakistan.
