Implementation of Value Added
Tax (VAT) 2018
22 December 2017
Saudi Arabia & United Arab Emirates  

Dear Partner

Following the announcement of the introduction of Value Added Tax (VAT) across Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates, effective January 1st 2018, GTA services will fall within the scope of taxable lodging and services.

For bookings made in 2017 for arrivals on/from 1st January 2018, in the eventuality the VAT was not included at the time of booking, the suppliers may charge your guests directly; we request your support to inform your clients accordingly in order to avoid any inconvenience.

GTA is in the process of updating systems in coordination with partners to make necessary provisions to incorporate VAT requirements.

For any inquiries, please contact your Business Development Manager.


Kind regards,

GTA Finance Team
