Tally Solutions, a leading international accounting and compliance software provider, recently hosted a summit on value-added tax (VAT) in Bahrain as part of its ongoing efforts to raise awareness of businesses on the new taxation system in the country.

The recently concluded ‘Bahrain VAT Summit’ at the Sheraton Bahrain Hotel featured renowned VAT and technology experts, who shed light on the changes that had taken place in the country six months after the implementation of the VAT law. They also tackled the proposed steps that could be taken in the remaining half of 2019 to ensure correct and timely VAT compliance and implementation.

Guest speaker Manu Nair, CEO of the Emirates Chartered Accountants Groups, discussed the key reforms rolled out at the national level during the first 180 days of VAT implementation and their subsequent business impact. Further, Nair highlighted the expectations in the next 180 days of VAT in the country to help companies prepare better.

The attendees consisted of VAT-registered businesses with queries around the new law; companies which were planning to voluntarily register; and enterprises with questions about the registration requirements for the second and third phases of VAT deployment.
