Oman: VAT registration via online portal, open 1 February 2021

Oman: VAT registration via online portal, open

The tax authority has opened registration for value added tax (VAT) and, to this end, released a registration process guide setting out the steps for registering for VAT through an online portal.


According to the registration process guide [PDF 1.6 MB], only those with a “commercial registration number” (CRN) can register for VAT through the tax authority’s online portal.  Domestic persons and non-residents with no CRN must complete other registration forms that are available on the Oman tax authority’s website and then submit these forms to the Oman tax authority via a specified email address. 

The registration process guide and the forms were provided after the Oman tax authority decided for a “staggered” registration schedule for those required to register for VAT (the schedule is based on monetary thresholds). 

Those eligible for voluntary VAT registration may apply for registration anytime on or after 1 February 2021. Persons with an annual turnover exceeding RO 1 million can apply for VAT registration during the period from 1 February 2021 to 15 March 2021.
