ISLAMABAD: The Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) has taken another step to facilitate the stakeholders. SECP has introduced the facility of paying fee via Credit Cards in its eServices regime. This is another step towards plastic money environment.
According to press release by the Media and Corporate Communications Department of SECP, by this eServices system, stakeholders can now submit their fee through credit cards in addition to submission of electronic filing of returns or forms. So, there is no need to visit the bank any more or SECP’s Company Registration Offices for submission of returns and payment of fee.
This step will result in enormous benefits for the corporate sector and will speed up processing times. The SECP has been actively pursuing this initiative for some time and is finally able to provide it to its stakeholders.
Moreover, the facility of payment of fee via banks for those not having credit card is still operative. First the designated branches of Muslim Commercial Bank (MCB) were allowed for the submission of SECP challans but now the SECP has also added United Bank Limited (UBL) branch banking for its fee, whereby designated branches of UBL will accept payment of SECP challans.
