Qatar has already cleared its intention by signing the GCC VAT Framework Agreement (Gulf Cooperation Council, Value Added Tax, Framework Agreement) as part of the GCC member states. By signing this framework, the member states have to introduce VAT and accordingly facilitate with relevant national legislation. There is no date announced for implementation of VAT in Qatar but it seems to be not far away, maybe in a year or two at the most.
- VAT is not a tax for the businesses to pay. However, due to the involvement of compliance costs, the government will expect them to collect it and deposit it to the government.
- One impact of VAT implementation in Qatar would be the revision of the supply chains. This would mean also factoring in relevant costs and taking care of the accounting obligations resulting from such an undertaking by the Qatari government as part of the GCC.
- IT systems would also have to adjust to the Qatar Vat implementation. Since, they would have to upgrade their IT systems, ERP, and the interfaces through which VAT information regarding input and output can be captured. This governance framework will also be reviewed and has to be updated in light of the policies, controls, and processes to comply with the Qatari VAT legislation.
- The member states would still have some room to make adjustments to this framework regarding VAT purposes for sectors like Free Zones, Education, and Healthcare.
