Value Added Tax

VAT and Indirect Taxes

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has recently released draft VAT regulations for public consultation through the tax authority (GAZT) website. This follows an earlier consultation held in June on the KSA’s domestic VAT law. The regulations, the law and the finalized GCC Framework Agreement form the entire foundations for the introduction of VAT across all sectors in Saudi Arabia from 1 January 2018.

BDO - Dr. Mohamed Al-Amri & Co. completing your VAT returns

Value Added Tax (VAT) creates more headaches for businesses than almost anything else - and the demands on firms become more complicated and time-consuming each year. By using BDO you can ensure that complying with VAT becomes straightforward. Many firms find they inadvertently underpay or overpay VAT, while the steep complexity of the VAT legislation trips many people up. Which items are VAT-able and which not? What about VAT on items which are partly for business use and partly personal? What about VAT on secondhand goods? The team at BDO can answer all these questions (and a myriad more you haven't thought of).
