JK Motors trading as Flo Petroleum had made an urgent application at the High Court for an order suspending the garnishee placed on its bank accounts pending the finalisation of the tax wrangle.
Justice Phildah Muzofa granted the provisional order sought by JK Motors pending the finalisation of the dispute.The judge found no harm in granting the relief sought saying the garnish order was prematurely placed on the company's accounts and therefore, null and void.
Zimra placed the garnishee on JK Motors to recover $1 007 531 and US$376 187 for the year 2019 while the shortfall for the period of 2020 stood at $1 350 833 and US$430 357.
