Dealing with customs becomes more and more relevant since the international trade is growing fast in Qatar.

Dealing with customs becomes relevant since the intl. trade is growing fast in Qatar.

Successful entrepreneurs with cross-border operations understand the importance of complying with local and international trade and customs taxes and tariffs to avoid unexpected indirect costs. As a signing member of the Greater Arab Free Trade Agreement and the GCC Unified Common Customs Law, and given its geographic location and economic opportunities, Qatar is becoming a favorable destination for many multi-national corporations and as the country thrives, local businesses are increasingly expanding their operations regionally and globally.
