Why You Should Attend

3rd Annual MENA VAT

Its the aftermath of VAT, what do you look out for ?

Implementing VAT has been considerably a challenge for most businesses within UAE and KSA since January 2018. Complying with VAT requires a comprehensive regulatory transformation within businesses, therefore strengthening governance and grasping the technicalities is crucial to avoid a huge burden on cash flows and costly non-compliance risks. Digital transformation has been equally important, leading to cloud adoption across GCC countries at a rapid pace and becoming mainstream as businesses now realise that it offers them speed, innovation, security, and better return on investment.

Be part of our 3rd Annual MENA VAT conference and take the next step into the evolving finance world. Get insights from exclusive presentations on Intra GCC Transactions Dissecting Deeper into the Cross Border Transaction of Goods, Sustaining your Organisations Cash Flow by Keeping your Working Capital Cost Down, and Enhancing Governance and Compliance by Keeping Good Audit for VAT within your Organisation. We present an experienced panel of speakers in highly interactive discussions on Supercharging your VAT Filing and Refund Process, VAT Powertalk: Zooming in on the Applicability of VAT in Different Industries and Zones and VAT Helpdesk: Enhancing Support and Feedback for a Smoother VAT Workflow.

There are also Half-Day Workshops on Digital Transformation for VAT and Compliance and Risk Assessment for VAT that will enrich you with the framework needed to comply with tax laws. You can be prepared to take away key practices that will turn your organisation into a beacon of excellence.
