According to the VAT Rates in Saudi Arabia, the initial standard VAT Rate in January 2018 is 5% and then, it was updated to 15% in July 2020. Since the implementation, businesses in this country have been made to stay compliant with the VAT regulations and guidelines. The first phase of compliance is the VAT registration in KSA, as only the registered businesses are eligible to impose VAT on their products and services, collect the charges and pay it to the government. 

This session discusses more on VAT registration in Saudi Arabia and the process to do it in the simplest way.


Types of VAT Registration in KSA

VAT does not mandate all businesses to register for VAT. The VAT regulations have implemented a margin in the case of VAT registration. This margin is defined based on the annual value of products. Every Business that thinks of getting a VAT Certificate in Saudi Arabia falls under any one of the following,

  1. Mandatory Registration
  2. Voluntary Registration
  3. Registration Exemption


Mandatory Registration

The businesses established in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with taxable goods with a value exceeding SAR 375,000 in the previous financial year must register for VAT in Saudi Arabia. The non-resident businesses must register for VAT regardless of the registration margin. Moreover, a non-resident need to hire a GAZT-approved Tax Representative from KSA.


Voluntary Registration

This is an optional registration for specific groups of businesses in Saudi Arabia. Businesses having residence in KSA with a value of the taxable products falling between SAR 187,500 & SAR 375,000 in the previous year, are eligible for VAT Registration in Saudi Arabia. 


Under this category, VAT registration is not mandatory for businesses. However, if registered, you get notable benefits in your businesses as it enables the deduction of input tax. 


Registration Exemption

Here, the businesses involved in supplying zero-rated products are exempted from VAT registration, although the value of the annual production exceeds the registration margin. However, these businesses are eligible for Voluntary registration.
