Compensation for the facilities

Business Government

This service allows state-contracted facilities to claim compensation for the increase in labor fees resulting from the implementation of the Fiscal Balance Program, where expat levy fees for each facility in which the number of foreign employees equals or exceeds the number of Saudis, have been modified pursuant to Cabinet Resolution No. 197, dated December 22, 2016. The service is part of Ministry of Finance initiatives to support state contracted companies without amending costs incurred by the implementation of Cabinet Resolution No. 197. Compensation will include principal contract term, including extension periods for reasons not related to contractor with the government entity.
