The Oman Tax Authority (OTA) has issued a notice that, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Tax Authority continues to accept registration applications for the new VAT regime for persons with taxable supplies exceeding OMR 1 million (original deadline was 15 March 2021). Registration applications must be submitted through the electronic portal to avoid any penalties that may be imposed. The next registration deadline is 31 May 2021 for persons with taxable supplies exceeding OMR 500,000.
The OTA has also published new English-language guidance on registration for non-residents. The guidance covers the obligations for non-residents to register and rules for appointing a tax representative. Further information in both Arabic and English can be found on the OTA's VAT webpage.
