GCC Value Added Tax (VAT) Implementation Training

Why Choose this Course?

GCC has started introducing value-added tax (VAT) in 2018, and the GCC anticipates that 95% or more of companies will comply in the initial stage. Organizations across the 6 GCC states, excluding those in healthcare and education, will likely have to comply with a 5% VAT rate.

Companies will need much longer to study the law, examine the impact of VAT on their operations and modifying their IT systems and business processes. Fitch Ratings Agency also raised a similar concern, citing that the go-live date would create a very tight timetable. “This will introduce greater uncertainty and operational challenges for GCC corporates. However, we expect GCC governments to recognize these challenges and show a degree of flexibility during the initial implementation,” Fitch said.
