|11:45||Event close & Networking|
Ascertaining the impact VAT will have on a business and the changes required is an essential step in any VAT implementation process. Once understood, an effective VAT compliance and management plan can be developed and put into action – given that VAT implementation in Qatar is expected soon,, this session is timely as our members continue to be at the forefront of this key fiscal reform. Our research suggests that while there is awareness that VAT will have a broad impact, only 11% of respondents understand the impact that VAT implementation will have on their business. This session will highlight the impact of VAT and how businesses can prepare. During the course of the session, the case for technology in relation to ongoing management will be highlighted further, along with sharing where we are now and projected to go once VAT is implemented in Qatar.
