January 14, 2021

The General Tax Authority (GTA) has signed an agreement with Qatar Finance and Business Academy (QFBA) under which the QFBA would provide specialised training programmes for GTA staff.
The training will enhance the knowledge transfer of internal expertise and empower national talents for organisational development purposes.
The agreement comes after four-month coordination and work between the two parties to develop a training strategy covering various departments. The GTA aims to present the highest-quality training for its employees to enhance their expertise and contribute to developing their skills.
The QFBA will present exclusive training programmes to provide an opportunity for GTA’s employees to benefit from all advanced materials available for training purposes.
The collaboration agreement between the GTA and the QFBA was signed at the GTA’s headquarters in West Bay by GTA President Ahmed bin Issa Al Mohannadi and QFBA CEO Khalid Mohammed Al Horr.
The agreement is part of the GTA’s endeavour to promote Qatar National Vision 2030 by implementing tax policies to enhance the government’s revenues and support diversification of Qatar’s economy for future generations.
The agreement also came within the core tasks of the QFBA, as a leading national institution in providing international university degrees for finance majors and accredited international professional certificate programmes.
Through this partnership, the QFBA will provide experts and consultants who will conduct workshops and training courses based on GTA’s requirements for the next three years, focusing on specific areas related to GTA’s nature of business.
Mohannadi said, “I am delighted today to sign a collaboration agreement with the QFBA in training and financial consultancy. This initiative confirms our commitment to raising our national talents’ capabilities and competencies to keep pace with GTA’s future requirements. We have chosen to partner with the QFBA because of its great experience in this field and the high-level training programmes it presents.”
Horr said, “We are proud to sign this agreement with the GTA. This provides vast opportunities for training and development programs for Qatari talents through various specialised training paths and various consultancy projects specifically tailored to GTA’s goals and employee needs. There is no doubt that this agreement reflects GTA’s priorities in the sustainable development of its employees, thus, reflected in supporting the economic development of the country.”
It is worth mentioning that this partnership comes as the culmination of the GTA and the QFBA’s accomplishment in designing the strategic training plan for all the GTA’s sectors until 2024, which has contributed to present a model of partnership and collaboration that reflects best practices in professional planning for talent management, empowerment of national workforce, and organisational development.
The agreement includes a wide range of training and consulting services for different tracks, most notably: training needs assessment and building competencies, professional development programmes for new employees, development of finance and accounting departments, strategic planning and business development, ISO quality management systems, customer service, as well as anti-money laundry and other areas that the joint-committee from both entities will undertake the responsibility of implementation and taking measures to achieve goals as stated in the agreement.
