KPMG in Qatar is proud to announce that it successfully convened a meeting between Qatar’s General Tax Authority (GTA) and the Swiss Federal Tax Authority (FTA) in Bern, Switzerland and a seminar for the GTA conducted by the KPMG’s Insights Center in Zurich.  The visit took place on 27-28 June with a delegation that included senior officials from the GTA and the undersecretary of the Ministry of Transport and Communications (MoTC).

The trip was facilitated by Barbara Henzen and co-hosted by Ahmed Abu-Sharkh. Barbara explained the rationale for the visit:

“It’s always great when we can leverage the KPMG network to bring valuable insights to our clients. This visit with GTA and MoTC was a proactive initiative, responding to interest from our clients in sharing experiences from other tax authorities on matters such as VAT implementation, tax technology, and anti-money laundering.”

The GTA and MoTC guests welcomed the initiative and found the meetings interesting and insightful. This visit provided a good opportunity for positive client interaction and demonstrated the connectivity between our local teams and the global KPMG network, as well as our strong relationships with regulators around the world.

The GTA was recently established as a separate entity, under the supervision of the Ministry of Finance, and is in charge of the implementation of all tax laws in the State of Qatar. The team is following up on these discussions and we look forward to growing our relationship with the GTA as they work to bolster tax compliance in Qatar.
