The Bahraini Cabinet approved a draft law amending the value-added tax, and increasing it from the current 5% to 10%, starting from January 2022.

The Council referred the draft law amending the value-added tax to Parliament for approval.

The Bahrain government said in a statement on Monday that the annual growth of real GDP reached 5.7 percent in the second quarter of 2021.
