GCC VAT – How to avoid being one out of four companies fined?


L'événement est terminé.

Register now for our next breakfast seminar on VAT updates and make sure that you do not become part of the 25% of businesses which got fined.


During this seminar, our experts from AURIFER TAXMr. Thomas Vanhee and Mr. Laurent Bertin will share with you the latest VAT updates in the UAE, KSA and GCC. The buck does not stop at filing the returns and implementing VAT in your internal processes. The implementation was not a one shot exercise. We have seen increased attention and audits from the UAE and KSA tax authorities applying important penalties for violators. In addition, the VAT legislation in Bahrain is even more strict. Following a client survey conducted by AURIFER, one of the conclusions was that almost 25% of businesses already got fined.

The speakers have been involved in the tax policy processes in UAE and KSA and lecture at Paris Sorbonne Abu Dhabi, the DIFC Academy of Law, the IBFD, as well as other international institutions. They are amongst the longest serving VAT advisers in the region and have guided many businesses in their VAT implementation and are currently assisting businesses with corrections where necessary.The topics covered during the seminar are as following:- UAE updates:

  • VAT refund mechanism
  • VAT updates by sectors: Real Estate, Insurance
  • VAT regimes updates: Designated Zones, entertainment expenses, tax invoices, labour accommodation
  • Relation with the FTA: Tax Audits, Voluntary Disclosure and Clarification process
