Fundamentals of GCC VAT Law is an excellent contribution to understand the VAT principles introduced in the region in 2018. It covers both the GCC VAT treaty provisions as well as domestic VAT laws enacted so far. The book is not a compilation of laws and guides. On the contrary, for every VAT concept, it takes a step back to explain the theory behind the policy providing the reader with tools to understand the current rules and keys to comprehend any future amendment in the tax policy.
