Value Added Tax

What is VAT?

  • Value Added Tax (or VAT) is an indirect tax which is imposed on selected goods and services that are bought and sold by businesses.
  • VAT is used in more than 140 countries around the world as a reliable source of revenue for state budgets, supporting spending on important areas like Healthcare, Infrastructure, Education and Defense .

Reasons for Introduction of VAT in GCC VAT

  • Saudi Arabia's ambitious economic transformation strategy will be supported by the introduction of VAT, by helping to build an economy and state budget with a reduced dependency on oil and gas revenues.
  • In addition, the GCC Unified Agreement for Value Added Tax is part of efforts across the region to support the diversification of government revenues. The introduction of VAT will create a new source of stable and predictable revenue for governments which can then be used to finance important public services.
