Bahrain is an exciting place to do business with many opportunities for new and well-established businesses to grow and expand both in the Kingdom and beyond. However, with opportunities come challenges.

Understanding and deciding how to set up a business in the country can be daunting. With the onset of the Value Added Tax (VAT) and other taxes likely across the GCC, navigating the regulatory and tax landscapes both here and abroad can be complex.

At KPMG in Bahrain, our highly skilled and experienced professionals work with clients to develop corporate structuring and tax strategies that provide confidence and reassurance, which their businesses’ are not only compliant, but also prepared for future developments in tax regulation.
