General Tax Authority announces extension on tax returns by two months

Doha: The General Tax Authority (GTA) has announced extending the period for tax returns by two months. The new deadline date to file returns will be 30 June, 2020.

This decision comes in line with the directives of the Amir H H Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani to provide the necessary services to citizens and residents, foremost of which is to provide safety and protection from COVID-19 and to ensure the continuation of their healthy life.

GTA Management said, “At GTA, we work closely with the government offices to monitor the current situation. We recognise the challenging times we are encountering, especially in matters of finance. As part of our social responsibility, we are committed to showcasing our assurances to all our investors and partners to tackle the financial consequences.

We value our relationship with our taxpayers and our partners alike, and we are confident that our united efforts with the State of Qatar will help all of us not only to prevent further outbreaks but will exhilarate our economy ahead of time.”

GTA supports Qatar’s COVID-19 resilience and hence extending all the tax filing deadlines to 30 June provides support to businesses during these challenging times.
