The Zakat, Tax and Customs Authority (ZATCA) carried out more than 10,000 inspection rounds in January 2023 on markets and shops in various regions and cities across the Kingdom.
According to ZATCA, the rounds conducted by its oversight and inspection teams, in collaboration with the National Anti-Commercial Concealment Program, encompassed a variety of commercial sectors, most notably: retail, food, and professional services sectors. ZATCA says that these visits aim to reinforce taxpayers' compliance with the provisions of the applicable tax laws of the Kingdom.
The Authority's inspection rounds on markets and commercial and service shops are part of the supervisory efforts made by the oversight and field teams to reinforce business sector taxpayers' compliance and prevent commercial transactions in violation of the ZATCA-enforced regulations and instructions.
The Authority urges all consumers to lodge their reports against any establishment that exhibits any tax violations via its website (zatca.gov.sa) or ZATCA App. ZATCA offers incentive rewards for people who file reports on tax violations, rewards amount to 2.5% of the value of violations and fines, at a maximum of 1 million riyals or a minimum of 1000 riyals.
