Saudi Arabia introduced a Value-added Tax

Starting from Jan 1, Saudi Arabia, together with the United Arab Emirates, pioneers the introduction of a VAT within the Gulf Cooperation Council. For German (and European) exporters in a nutshell:
  • The VAT value is 5 %.
  • All local companies were obliged to register with the General Authority for Zakat and Tax (gazt.gov.sa) until mid-December 2017, hence should have a VAT number and a corresponding certificate.
  • The VAT scheme is pretty much similar to ‘our’ European model: the importer is liable to pay the tax, not the exporter - provided the terms of delivery are agreed upon accordingly.
  • In case imported goods are re-sold locally the import VAT can be deducted as an input tax/VAT.
  • Important for German firms which are taxable locally, such as service providers: all non-resident taxable persons must have one Tax Representative. He will be jointly liable for payment of taxes/VAT due by the taxable person. GAZT is currently qualifying Tax Representatives.
