Workshop on VAT in the Gulf - Past, Present and Future - Jan 23, 2019

With the Gulf Cooperation Council announcing a Value Added Tax from 2018, it has become a matter of utmost importance that businesses having dealings with the GCC region not only understand the upcoming VAT, but also prepare their businesses for such changes.

It is agreed by all the GCC countries that VAT will be introduced in every country latest by 1st January 2019. The introduction of VAT represents a significant change in tax policy and will cause a paradigm shift in the business dynamics in the GCC region.

What is GCC VAT ?

GCC VAT is an indirect tax that will be levied on goods and services in the member states of the Gulf Cooperation Council. Registered businesses who operate in any of these states will levy the VAT on the goods and services they supply, on behalf of the government. It will be levied in each stage of the supply chain and the end user will incur its payment. The GCC VAT will also be levied on the import of goods.
