- Advertisment -

Saudi Arabia on Monday announced that it is suspending the cost of living allowance and increasing the value added tax to 15 percent.

In a Khaleej Times report, the decision is part of measures aimed to shore up state finances, which have been battered by low oil prices and the Covid-19.

Cost of living allowance will be suspended from June 1, and VAT increase will take effect on July 1.
