The UAE government will be imposing a tax on businesses with a yet-to-be-finalized minimum annual turnover. The rate of VAT is 5%. A VAT will be applied to the majority of transactions throughout the value chain.
The Zero tax regime was one of the major reasons that the UAE has traditionally been seen as commerce-friendly by businesses; however, the government’s plan to raise revenues to supplement the income from oil and other hydrocarbons through VAT has raised quite a few questions among companies.
To address these concerns, Commitbiz has launched tax consulting in Dubai to provide advice on tax issues to foreign companies operating in the UAE. We guide our clients on how to avoid double taxation, how to implement tax treaties between countries, reviewing the periodical forms and statements of the companies, among others.
