MEC Issues Decision on Sales at Discounted Prices in Shops


HE Sheikh Ahmed bin Jassim bin Mohammed Al Thani, Minister of Economy and Commerce (MEC),



issued decision No.311 of 2018 on discounted prices, and one of the key highlights of the ministerial decision is the classification of discounts into two categories.

The first category includes special discounts relating, for instance, to festivals and special events that take place in malls, and target specific loyal customers registered by shops.

The decision also authorizes discounts over 50% and stipulates that special discount days shall not be deducted from seasonal discount days.

The second category, as defined by the ministerial decision, is general discounts, such as seasonal discounts, which are now permitted over a one-month period rather than 21 days.

General discounts over 50% are also now permitted.

The ministerial decision states that shops and commercial establishments can apply for special and general discount license electronically by applying at MEC website.
