Event Description

VAT In GCC (New Delhi)

Achromic Point would proudly like to announce its association with BDO India LLP as its Knowledge Partner for its upcoming Seminar on “VAT in GCC” scheduled in New Delhi – April 19, 2018.

Introduction of VAT marks a turning point in the GCC Region. This Change is heralded by implementation of VAT in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
