VAT framework in GCC countries

KPMG helps to develop a guidebook on the Value Added Tax (VAT) Framework in GCC countries along with the Institute of Banking Studies in Kuwait.

9 September 2018

KPMG in Kuwait assisted in the development of a guidebook on the Value Added Tax (VAT) Framework in GCC countries along with The Institute of Banking Studies in Kuwait. The guide aimed at the financial services sector seeks to provide an understanding of VAT in the GCC. Written in Arabic, the print version of the guide has been made available to all banks and major financial services institutions in Kuwait.

The Institute of Banking Studies in Kuwait is a government body, which contributes effectively to the growth and prosperity of the Kuwaiti banking and financial sector by providing state of the art professional education, training, research and consultancy services that align talent resources, experience, knowledge and skills capabilities within this sector to global standards.

The guide provides a high-level introduction on the GCC VAT framework agreement, including information on how VAT is expected to be applied in Kuwait, what typically comprise VAT supplies and what business can think about today in order to begin transitioning to a VAT environment. Our VAT experts prepared the technical content used in the guide and provided valuable insights wherever required during the course of preparation of the guide.
