Implementing VAT and future taxation models for oil and gas in the GCC
The low oil price continues to dominate the headlines with predictions of a durable price recovery becoming increasingly distant. The industry response in tackling costs and the pursuit of financial discipline is making progress however there is much that remains on the ‘to do’ list.
With the VAT decree ready to go live on January 1, 2018 in UAE and KSA, there are many elements of the law that are not yet clarified, especially to the energy sector in the GCC that has never had a tax process to date.
The Finance and Taxation in Energy Sector Forum taking place from 6-7 December in Abu Dhabi, UAE, will bring together tax and finance leaders from the Big 4, and oil, gas and power companies to address their challenges in achieving clarity on the VAT implementation and prevent any negative impact on their cash flows.
The event aims to share insights in how organisations can build on their technical capabilities and processes to ensure they are aligned to VAT for a smooth run in the coming years.
