Saudi Arabia - January 8, 2018
Jan 11, 2018, 08:14 AM
Effective 1st of January 2018, a value-added tax (VAT) of 5% will be applied to the total value of each individual item entering the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, to be paid by the consignee. This includes, without exception, all commodities being sent to Saudi Arabia, regardless of their purpose.
It is therefore essential that each customs declaration form provide clear and precise details, including the name of the product and the total value under each item. This will help speed up Customs processing. Missing details may cause delays.
