VAT Credit Note Template for all GCC countries is an excel template, which can be used to issue VAT compliant credit note to your customers.
As per accounting rules, a credit note is a document that supplier issues in case of overbilling or return of goods against a particular invoice.
Value Added Tax is expected to be implemented across GCC from 1st Jan 2018. Thus, all businesses processes and accounting systems have to be VAT compliant.
