Gearing up for VAT

John Peacock, Senior Associate at BSA Ahmad Bin Hezeem & Associates LLP and Kelvin Tayfield, Managing Director of The VAT Services Group held a comprehensive seminar onGearing up for VATon May 9that the InterContinental Dubai Marina. The implementation of VAT is no longer just a buzz – it is a reality from the 1st of January 2018. As this is a first in the GCC, many businesses do not have a comprehensive understanding of how it will impact on their overall business. This was even more so proved by a very active Q&A session that concluded our VAT seminar!
