Saudi Arabia is a unique jurisdiction when it comes to taxation. Notably absent are taxes on individual income, but the Kingdom has other levies and fees, such as VAT and corporate taxes, that fill governmental coffers.
Individual Income Tax
- Rate: Saudi Arabia imposes a 0% income tax on individual incomes.
- Implications: No income tax can be attractive to professionals and expatriates, but it’s essential to consider other financial obligations that exist.
Standard Corporate Tax Rates
- Saudi Companies: Domestic corporations are generally taxed at a rate of 20%.
- Foreign Companies: Non-Saudi companies, especially in the oil and gas sector, may face higher tax rates, sometimes up to 85%.
Value Added Tax (VAT)
- Rate: The VAT rate was increased to 15% in July 2020.
- Scope: This tax applies to many goods and services, although some essentials like healthcare and education are exempt.
- Rate: Customs duties range from 5% to 12%.
- Exceptions: Some goods, like tobacco and luxury items, have higher rates.
Special Taxes and Fees
- Rate: Saudi nationals and companies pay Zakat, a form of almsgiving, at 2.5% of net worth.
- Scope: Zakat is obligatory for Muslims and is used for social welfare programs.
- Rate: An expatriate levy is imposed on companies employing foreign workers. The cost varies depending on the number of expatriate employees.
- Purpose: This levy aims to encourage businesses to hire Saudi nationals.
