Qatar Excise Tax Law

Signed on December 13, 2018 which has been in affect since January 1, 2019, Qatar Law 25/2018 has offered some exemptions from excise tax but under certain conditions. Similar to the other Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, the businesses that import, produce or store “health-damaging” or “special purpose” goods such as tobacco, alcohol and energy drinks in Qatar must now account for excise tax and file a transitional tax return if applicable. It is highly anticipated that Qatar will implement other types of the indirect taxes which will contribute to the Qatar National Vision 2030 by creating new sustainable sources of income to be invested in and which will have long-term economic growth.
