How will VAT affect the construction sector in Qatar?
Deloitte training on the likely impacts and appropriate responses
The construction sector is the economic barometer for the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), it supports large numbers of livelihoods and delivers the necessary infrastructure, commercial and residential spaces that are crucial to the continued development of the region.
So how will VAT introduction in the GCC affect this sector?
Deloitte’s Tax practice in the Middle East is organizing a discursive and interactive forum to discuss, as a peer group, how VAT interacts with the construction sector and what industry issues construction firms will likely face in preparation for entry into the VAT system. The discussion will be facilitated by Deloitte VAT experts with significant experience in the industry. With that in mind, we are delighted to invite you to our event in Qatar on Monday, February 27, 2017 to discuss the matter.
The agenda includes the following:
- Introduction to the VAT fundamentals and mechanics
- Update on the developments and the legal framework in the GCC
- Impacts of VAT on the construction sector
- Construction sector challenges, mitigating risks and maximizing opportunities
- Successful VAT implementation – the necessary structures and processes
- Interactive Q&A session.
We hope that the event will prove useful in helping affected businesses understand the likely scope and scale of VAT impacts, and what changes might be necessary to accommodate them.
We look forward to welcoming you to our event.
