The Ministry of Labor and Social Development (MLSD) and the General Authority for Zakat and Income Tax (GAZT) signed a deal on information sharing between the two entities.

The agreement was signed in the presence of Deputy Minister of Labor and Social Development Ahmed Al Humaidan, and governor of GAZT, Suhail Abanmi.

The agreement aims to improve cooperation between MLSD and GAZT and to implement an ideal data sharing mechanism between them. It includes exchange of information for data verification, follow up and data-updation. This would help in integrating error free data with the systems and thereby facilitate e-services.

The agreement is an addition to the ministry and GAZT’s strive towards raising awareness and organizing educational programs to highlight the importance of submitting zakat and income statements by establishments in order to avoid penalties.
