Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states introduced Value Added Tax (VAT) on 1 January 2018. This significantly changed the way business is conducted in the Middle East.

VAT and your business

VAT is an indirect tax that is paid by consumers when they buy most goods and services.

Businesses in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, and Oman will collect a standard tax rate of five percent (5%) at each stage of the supply chain, on behalf of the government.

If your annual turnover exceeds 375,000 AED, you will need to register as a Value Added Tax vendor.

Is your business VAT ready?

Sage can help you comply with the tax rules and avoid penalties. We’ll help you update your operations and assess the impact VAT will have on your value chain. This includes sales and exports, margins and pricing, and customer demand.

The transition will be challenging and requires a significant time and resource investment.

Sage’s range of next-generation VAT software has everything your business needs to stay compliant.
