Bahrain COVID-19 VAT measures
- Jul 7, 2020 | Richard Asquith
Bahrain has introduced Value Added Tax easements to recognise the economic disruption caused by the coronavirus epidemic.
The National Bureau for Revenue has announced a delay on June VAT returns from 31 July to 5 August 2020. This will help firms with stretched workforces during the Eid public holidays.
Bahrain introduced VAT from 1 January 2019. It is the third of the six Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) member states to do so.
