Understanding VAT in the GCC
VAT is tax, charged by the government, on the consumption of goods and services. As an indirect tax on the consumption of goods and services. VAT is borne by end consumers and collected incrementally at each stage of a business’s supply chain on behalf of the government.
VAT has been set at a standard 5% across GCC countries and has come into effect from 1 January 2018 in the United Arab Emirates and Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with Sultanate of Oman implementing for the first time from 16 April 2021. Any person whose annual value of supplies exceeds or is expected to exceed the mandatory threshold of OMR 38500 must apply to register for VAT. A failure to comply with this legislation can lead to penalties and/or prosecution.
