Nortal to help Oman introduce VAT

We are creating a holistic technical solution to help Oman implement Value Added Tax (VAT). Total cost of the solution is 10.5 million euros (4.4 million OMR).

According to Andres Raieste, Head of Public Finance Management at Nortal, the solution ensures maximum accrual of VAT and effective collection of the tax with minimum administrative burden and costs, while creating a fair business environment and user-friendly services for all taxpayers.

The implementation of value added tax in Oman, is part of an initiative by the GCC states to implement VAT in all member states. We have been selected by Oman as a partner to provide the necessary technical solutions and establish the infrastructure for the implementation of effective tax collection in Oman.

Using modern technology, analytics and its extensive experience in creating some of the world’s most efficient VAT collection systems, we have prepared a plan for Oman to introduce VAT in the best possible way for the government and society, according to Raieste.

For a successful execution of this complex project, we have involved globally renowned fiscal advisors as external consultants, as well as world-class in-house experts such as Marek Helm, who has a strong background in building one of the most efficient tax organisations in the world.

We have extensive experience in carrying out mission-critical and high-impact projects across Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and been a partner and vendor for some of the most efficient tax organizations in the world. We have built roughly a third of Estonia’s e-government solutions, as well as played a substantial role in helping to create an acclaimed tax solution ranked as the most competitive tax system in the OECD, according to the Tax Foundation report.

We are currently also creating a new tax management and revenue collection solution for the Botswana Unified Revenue Services (BURS) to increase revenue collection and reduce the administrative burden. The solution will be implemented in stages over 18 months by the beginning of 2019.
