Navigating the global tax compliance landscape successfully is complex and resource-intensive. Every country has a specific and constantly evolving set of legislated e-invoicing requirements.
Non-compliance, intentional or not, can result in significant financial penalties, business disruption, and reputational damage.
In an interview published in Qatar’s Al Sharq newspaper on 7 November 2021, the President of Qatar’s General Tax Authority, Mr. Ahmad Eissa Al Mohannadi, confirmed that the country is still determined to introduce VAT as per the GCC Unified VAT Agreement that was signed by all GCC member states in June 2016.
In accordance with the GCC Framework, Qatar will introduce VAT with two rates: standard rate (5%) and zero rate (0%), depending on the type of goods or services. It is expected that the VAT law and its Executive Regulations will be released in the course of 2022.
In February 2016 the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) announced that Value-Added Tax (VAT) would be rolled out throughout the Gulf States, starting in January 2018.
