The General Authority of Zakat and Tax (GAZT) held a workshop for heads of auditing departments at its branches.
The workshop comes as a part of the authority’s efforts to develop and streamline its procedures, most notably the revision and auditing of the taxpayers’ tax returns.
It covered issues related to the revision activities, overcoming the difficulties facing the revision activities and suggestions to simplify and improve such activities.
The GAZT issued a circular to all its branches to limit speeches in order to focus on the important points.
The Authority adopts a self-assessment strategy so that the taxpayer can determine the Zakat payable by it before the GAZT selects a random sample from submitted returns in order to be revised, making sure that the information contained in these returns is correct.
