Bahrain is set to become the third Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) to implement the unified agreement on Value Added Tax (VAT) on goods and services.

Bahrain VAT Update for 2019


It was announced at the start of 2018 that the VAT regime would be implemented by October of this year. However, the Bahrain Parliament has now approved a VAT agreement, and the 5% VAT Rate will be effective from January 1st 2019.
Saudi Arabia and The United Arab Emirates became the first countries in the Gulf Region to implement a VAT regime this year. Other Gulf Region countries have been working on following in their footsteps with this new VAT regime.
