The National Bureau for Taxation (NBT) yesterday introduced a new service that allows consumers to verify vendors’ VAT registration status through a search tool accessible on www.nbt.gov.bh.
This new system allows consumers to check vendors’ official registration records by searching for its VAT Registration Number, Commercial Registration Number and QR code.
This service strengthens consumer protection and transparency to further build on the success of the VAT. It aims to facilitate the monitoring mechanisms during the VAT’s initial stage, and strengthen regulatory compliance.
The NBT continues to encourage consumers to report violations by calling 80008001 or by emailing www.nbt.gov.bh.
