Manama, Jan. 2 (BNA): The Ministry of Finance has announced its commitment to implementing the Value Added Tax (VAT) in 2018 within the framework of joint commitment of the GCC member states to enforcing the afore-mentioned tax and in line with the decisions of the GCC leaders in this respect as well as the unified agreement concluded in this regard.

The ministry added that the government will take all procedures in cooperation with the legislative branch to approve VAT law, prepare the private sector and the commercial institutions and ensure provision of the needed logistic and technical preparations.
