WEBINAR: A Tax & Legal Guide to Doing Business in Qatar

20th September, 1.00-2.00PM Doha time. PwC Qatar launches their new tax and legal guide to doing business in Qatar, in collaboration with the Investment Promotion Agency Qatar (IPA Qatar) and supported by the General Tax Authority (GTA), Qatar Financial Centre (QFC) and the Qatar Free Zones Authority (QFZA).


The Middle East, perhaps more than any other part of the world, is currently undergoing massive and fast transformation, as economies around the region navigate their way into an exciting new phase of growth and development.

Alongside this transformation, the countdown to the 2022 World Cup begins, and the spotlight is on Qatar with an inflow of foreign direct investment expected to contribute towards the country’s major infrastructure development.

PwC Qatar has joined forces with IPA Qatar, the country’s new umbrella organisation for foreign direct investment attraction to release the definitive guide to Qatar’s business environment and fiscal regime, providing companies with a full understanding of the tax, legal and regulatory framework, unfolding the country’s vast, sector-diverse opportunities where businesses can leverage Qatar’s business-friendly investment ecosystem.

So, whether you’re already operating in Qatar, or considering moving into the country as a new market, tune in to hear our experts discuss the challenges and opportunities for your organisation.

This virtual event will begin with keynote remarks, followed by an insight into the purpose and services of IPA Qatar and Qatar’s value proposition for foreign businesses. The moderated panel with tax and legal experts will then focus on the key findings of the new Guide, while outlining the country’s promising investment landscape, with a focus on its legal and tax environment.
