Value Added Tax (VAT) is a relatively straightforward tax that is simple to comply with, is generally free from economic distortions, and is neutral to changes in trading and distribution patterns. From a government perspective, the introduction of VAT has advantages. It is inflation-neutral, a reliable generator of income, and applies to a broad base consisting of goods, services, real property, and intangibles, as well as being a proven system adopted in many countries globally. For these reasons, VAT is a good option to ensure that there is sufficient funding for public spending should oil and gas revenue fall significantly without non-oil public revenue rising to cover the shortfall.
