Global trade and Customs in the GCC
Supporting businesses in the Middle East
Customs duty is perhaps the longest standing, broad-based, commonly-applied form of taxation across the countries of the UAE, KSA, Bahrain, Qatar, and Kuwait, a region with little history of taxation. GCC countries are unified through a common customs law, however administrative practices often differ at a local level. This brochure provides an overview of the Customs and Global Trade movement displayed through case studies, as well as Deloitte’s approach to navigating businesses through complex initiatives.
