According to Article 45 related to Calculating Tax mentioned in Value Added Tax – Implementing Regulations of Saudi VAT Law:
” The Net Tax payable by a Taxable Person in respect of a Tax Period is calculated by deducting the total Input Tax, including Input Tax on imports, allowed to the Taxable Person during the Tax Period from the total of Output Tax payable in respect of all Taxable Supplies made by the Taxable Person in the Kingdom during the Tax Period”

A taxpayer has to pay VAT at the time of import of goods also. This VAT is paid under Reverse Charge Mechanism. It is also called Reverse Charge.
