GAZT had recently held similar workshops in Hafr Al-Batin and Madinah.

All business representatives are urged to attend the workshops as it highlights the importance of tax returns and the required steps to file them.
As per the Value Added Tax (VAT) Law and Implementing Regulations and System, businesses registered in VAT whose value of annual supplies of taxable goods and services exceeds SAR 40 million are required to submit their tax returns on a monthly basis, while businesses whose value of annual supplies of taxable goods and services is SAR 40 million or less are required to do so on a quarterly basis. 

Furthermore, the taxable persons or whoever is authorized on their behalf are required to file the tax returns no later than the last day of the month that follows the end of the tax period for which the tax return relates.
