About Gulf Tax Accounting Group

Gulf Tax Accounting Group “GTAG “- is a leading specialist consulting firm that provides expert services in business advisory, accounting, VAT, IT, Trust and outsourced CFO services.

From our headquarters in Dubai, we serve a wide variety of clients located throughout the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) and greater MENA (Middle East & North Africa) region.

Working with our business network, we strive to maintain an open and close relationship with our clients, anticipating and facilitating their needs as their business evolves, from start-up to exit strategies.




Our competitive advantage

At GTAG, we take the time to listen, and understand what our client wants, understanding this, and understanding the landscape that the business will be working in, allows us to provide a bespoke solution for our clients that is tailor-made to meet their needs.

GTAG has developed a strong brand and a robust business model, focusing on businesses at various stages of growth, from small start-ups to medium-sized and large enterprises. With GTAG, you are not just another client, you become our partner in a wide network of clients and support services.

GTAG was founded with the specific remit to focus on mid-sized businesses, as this is a growing sector that is usually under-serviced by the traditional accounting practices.

GTAG helps businesses all over the GCC-member states (Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Bahrain, Kuwait) and MENA region with their local and cross-border trade by taking over the complexities of managing VAT, accounting, audit and other financial transaction obligations that involve inter-country transactions.
