Need for the Document
The Value Added Tax (VAT)was introduced in Morocco in 1986.
The Value Added Tax (VAT) is a non-cumulative tax levied at each stage of the production and distribution cycle. Thus, suppliers of goods and services must add VAT to their net prices.
Where the purchaser is also liable for VAT, input VAT may be offset against output VAT. The standard VAT rate is 20% and applies to all suppliers of goods and services, except those taxed at other rates or those who are exempt. A reduced rate of 10% applies to specific items such as banking and credit services,leasing, gas, water and electricity.Thus, suppliers of goods and services must add VAT to their net prices.
All goods except those taxed at other rates or those who are tax-exempt are subjected to a standard VAT rate of 20%.
- i)Tansport and electricity are taxed at 14%,
- ii)while banking, credit, gas are taxed at 10% and
- iii)water and pharmaceutical products are taxed at 7%.

Two types of exemptions from VAT are provided. The first is an exemption with credit,equivalent to the zero tax concept, which applies to exports, agricultural materials and equipment, and fishing equipment. The second is an exemption without credit - ie the seller receives no credit for input VAT paid. This exemption applies to basic foodstuffs, newspapers and international transport services.
