RSM Kuwait

VAT Services

The arrival of the Gulf Cooperation Council Value Added Tax Treaty, otherwise known as the GCC VAT agreement, in 2017 was a landmark moment for industry in the Gulf region. The GCC VAT agreement set up a VAT system framework between the six countries of the GCC – Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, establishing an indirect tax rate to be levied on all goods and services in the area.
