In addition, Walton Plazas in 29 districts across the country were also honoured with the highest VAT payer awards by the NBR under the business category at district levels, it added.
On the occasion of ‘National VAT Day and VAT Week’ observed in the current month across the country, the NBR awarded a total of 124 companies for paying highest amount of VAT (Value Added Tax) during the FY2014-15 under three sectors like manufacturing, business and service.
In the business category, a total of 49 enterprises, of which 29 were Walton Plazas, received district level highest VAT payer award.

Walton Group’s Executive Director and Chief Marketing Coordinator Eva Rezwana said Walton won the faith of customers of all classes by providing world-class products at reasonable prices. Consequently, both the sales and the demands for Walton products have increased substantially across the country, she noted.
