VAT Returns: At the stressful times for the responsible employees, particularly in a new VAT environment where many employees have limited experience, Berkeley Middle East Consultants can assist with the completion of periodic returns and ensuring timely and accurate filing of VAT calculations and attending to any queries raised by the relevant authorities.

VAT Manuals, Policies and Procedures: Berkeley Middle East Consultants has the expertise to generate customized VAT manuals, policies and procedures to cater for your particular business to ensure strict compliance with the requirements of VAT compliance and also to avoid penalties and interest that may be incurred in the case of any non-compliance by the business and employees.

Dispute Resolution: In our experience disputes arise from time to time in the normal course of business, and so will disputes arise with regard to VAT. Such disputes will be particularly prevalent during the initial stages of implementation, with VAT being a new concept in the GCC. Managing disputes is a time consuming task for which existing staff may not necessarily be equipped for or have the time to deal with. Berkeley Middle East Consultants is capable of alleviating the problem by providing a platform to whom to delegate these incidents and provide cost effective solutions.


VAT Audits: A regular VAT audit is always a good idea, particularly in the early years to ensure proper compliance and correct implementation and accounting. The VSG team can provide independent assessments periodically or on an ongoing basis to prevent possible non-compliance and even the identification of any under claiming of VAT input credits.

VAT Rulings: Legislation does not always cover each and every imaginable situation that may arise and sometimes there are grey areas that need clarification. This may arise in respect of out of the ordinary transactions for which it may not be clear as to what the VAT impact will be on the business. Berkeley Middle East Consultants can apply for clarification and obtain VAT rulings from the relevant authorities relevant to your particular situation.

Tax Clearance Certificates: Berkeley Middle East Consultants can assist in obtaining the necessary clearance certificates that will be required for certain legal and regulatory processes.
