Saudi Arabia will consider reducing VAT "ultimately"

Saudi Arabia introduced VAT at a 5% rate in 2018. This was later tripled to 15% in 2020 to shore up finances hit by low oil prices, when the COVID-19 pandemic hit global demand. The Saudi government has spent 1 trillion Riyals from the national reserves in the last five years. At the recent World Economic Forum 2022, the Minister of Finance, Mohammed al-Jadaan stated, “We will ultimately consider cutting the VAT but at the moment we are still replenishing the reserves”. Additionally, the Minister has pointed out that the Kingdom is in the final stages of drafting its fiscal sustainability policy, which ensures the reverses do not fall below a certain percentage level of GDP.
