Course Overview

This specially designed VAT Training program examines the rules and regulations of VAT and clearly demonstrates the procedures and controls that should be in place to ensure VAT returns are submitted accurately and on time. This training will give you a complete understanding of VAT, covering all the essentials topics and giving you the confidence to know if you are dealing with VAT correctly. The VAT Training is developed to equip your team to adequately embrace the VAT requirements in Global context. The introduction of VAT represents a significant change in tax policy and will have a major impact on businesses across GCC.
The program will provide a thorough understanding of the basic concepts and principles of VAT and how it operates internationally. When national VAT law of the country where the company is operating is issued, the program will be based on the content of the mentioned law and its secondary legislations.
This course introduces the basics of Value Added Tax. As such, no great understanding of VAT is required as the course will build from the absolute basics through to some of the more complex issues such as exemption. The workshop does not focus on VAT as applied any one country but takes a global view
