Value Added Tax in Oman

The Value Added Tax (VAT) is an indirect tax levied on the consumption of goods and services. Oman plans to implement VAT, proposing to enforce it during April 2021. VAT's introduction in Oman will mark a paradigm shift in the Sultanate's business environment, which until now, is not used to such consumption taxes.
