VAT is a self-assessed tax. It is the responsibility of all organisations to put into place the correct systems, processes and controls to ensure that VAT on relevant transactions is recorded and reported accurately, as required by the VAT regulations, and where applicable the correct payments are made to the authorities on a timely basis.
The introduction of VAT will be a significant change for businesses in Oman. This change impacts all areas of business such as HR, marketing, IT, supplies, procurements etc. and is not limited to the Finance department. Start preparing your business today!
