As part of our effort to enable UAE businesses to prepare for and gain understanding of the upcoming VAT laws, we are conducting a series of workshops in the UAE until the end of the year 2017. Our previous workshop in April focussed on the planning tools for businesses to start with their VAT implementation in their organization. This workshop would also be covering the IT and legal perspective when implementing VAT in your organisation

How it works?

This VAT technical workshop will be of one day duration and targeted to equip businesses with key framework and understand the nuances and details of VAT implementation issues.
