Oman’s Tax Authority has warned of a hefty fine on those who have not submitted the returns on value-added tax or VAT, said local reports on Monday.

Those who have not filed VAT returns would see a fine of up to OMR5,000 (around $13,000) imposed on them, the reports quoted the Tax Authority as saying.

The entity said in a statement: “Tax Authority would like to draw the attention of the taxpayers who have not submitted the VAT return for the tax period ending on 30 June 2021.”

It added: “They must submit the required return before 23 September 2021 to avoid any legal penalties that reach up to OMR 5,000 via the E-portal of Tax Authority.”

The standard rate of VAT in Oman is 5 percent, which is among the lowest in the world.

According to Oman’s VAT law, the VAT return is described thus: “Data and information specified for the purposes of the tax, which the taxable person must submit according to the form prepared for such purpose by the authority.”
