VAT Registration

The Kingdom of Bahrain began to gradually apply VAT as of January 2019. Companies and businesses are required to register with the National Bureau for Revenue (NBR) in order to obtain a tax number and tax registration certificate. VAT registration is phased in so that companies within specific annual supply categories are required to register within specified time periods. All companies and institutions that have reached or are expected to reach annual supplies of between BD37,500 (minimum mandatory limit) and BD500,000 must register for value added tax.
