This program requires a general rule of 40% value added through substantial transformation in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
The formula to calculate final value added percetage for products: Value added of manufactured product – ( Value of imported materials in manufacturing - imposed tax and fees)/ final value of ex-factory product *100
To calculate the value of final products, we subtract the value of all non-originating materials from the value of the product (value of the former manufactory), keeping in mind that the value of imported material shall not exceed 60% from the total price of manufacturing the final product in order to be considered as “ Saudi Made”.
Is there any documents, or receipts required to verify the value added?
No, the program does not require submitting any document or receipt to prove the value added. However, there is an annual audit on a sample of entities where documents will be requested for verification.
How do I register products in the Made in Saudi Program?
