The Zakat, Tax and Customs Authority said that the state bears the value-added tax due on private educational services provided to citizens, which includes school expenses, including the value of textbooks sold by private and international schools that are subject to tax and approved by the Ministry of Education. .
The authority explained that this comes in implementation of the royal order that the state bears the value-added tax on behalf of citizens benefiting from the private private education sector.
And she indicated that the educational services included in the scope of the application of the royal order also include educational services provided by private universities (for bachelor’s degrees) that fall under the supervision of the Ministry of Education, in addition to educational and training programs supervised by the General Organization for Technical and Vocational Training.
She pointed out that the mechanism for applying the state’s bearing of the tax agreed upon between the concerned authorities is carried out after verifying that the beneficiary is the citizen included in the royal order and that the citizen’s data is included in the tax invoice.
