TAG-Org Organizes Workshop on Value Added Tax in Bahrain

Manama - Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Organization (TAG-Org) organized a technical workshop on VAT and its impact on the education and health care sectors, with the participation of more than 150 employees working in these sectors. 

The workshop, which was held at the Talal Abu-Ghazaleh College of Business in Manama on February 14, represents the group's keenness to introduce this tax, which the GCC countries have agreed to implement at a basic rate of 5%. The Kingdom of Bahrain already began implementing it gradually since the beginning of this year, with some exceptions. 

"The education and healthcare sectors are zero-rated, but many of the basic necessities and requirements falling under these sectors are subject to this tax," said Professor Sachin Sharma, Senior Tax Manager at Talal Abu-Ghazaleh & Co. International (TAGI).

He pointed out that the purpose of the workshop is to define the level of impact of the tax implementation on the two sectors and on citizens, and to clarify a simplified approach and ways to deal with them properly. It is also based on the role of Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Organization in developing the capabilities of employees to meet the new services required in the Gulf countries, and how to deal with it computationally.
