Wednesday, 14 October 2020 | Mutual Agreement Procedure in KSA – MNE’s relief from double taxation (2:00 pm KSA)

On 9 June 2020, The General Authority of Zakat and Tax (GAZT) in Saudi Arabia published on its website the “Request for Mutual Agreement Procedure (MAP) — Taxpayer guidance” in both Arabic and English.  

Taxpayers, including multinational enterprises (MNEs) in Saudi Arabia may choose to initiate MAP requests to relieve double taxation or resolve treaty-based tax disputes in a timely manner. This is in line with Saudi Arabia’s commitment to the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Action 14 minimum standard as a member of the BEPS Inclusive Framework (BEPS IF).

In this webcast the agenda will include:

  • MAP and its broad implications
  • Leading practice examples seen around the globe
  • Existing tax controversy in Saudi Arabia
  • Typical cases where MAP might be useful (e.g., transfer pricing and permanent establishment)
  • The MAP process in Saudi Arabia

A Q&A session will be included in this 75-minute webcast.

We look forward to you joining us.

Time: 13:00–14:15 (CET) / 14:00–15:15 (KSA) / 15:00–16:15 (UAE)
