Yes, it is practically possible that debt can be worked as a tax shield. Simply a person or a bank gives loan or finance unless they got security of products, land and machinery. When a person using loan from a bank, it reduces the tax for the owner of the industry. This is a simple theory, at the end of working year FBR visits and demands for the bills of electricity and markup of a year, which will be deducted from the total amount of tax. If a person was unable to pay the markup or loan then the bank will cease his property and everything till their amount recovers.

Guyz this is an idea that I shared... I hope it will help us

Debt is always not feasible for capital structure if all the capital we financed with debt we would get the benefits of Tax shield but in other way we have risk for return back the debt amount, If our business shutdown and we will be unable to pay the debt we have to pay from our personal property.
