Qatar has announced the introduction of excise tax (“the excise tax”) effective from 01 January 2019 in line with the GCC Unified Excise Tax Treaty. The excise tax is imposed on certain goods, which are deemed to be damaging to consumer’s health.

Businesses engaging in importing, manufacturing and storing tobacco and its products, carbonated drinks, energy drinks and special purpose goods* (“the excisable goods”) will be affected by Qatar’s introduction of the excise tax. These businesses should assess their excise tax obligations carefully to ensure they are fully compliant and manage their tax in the most efficient way possible.
