Value Added Tax (VAT) in UAE

The UAE Minister of State for Financial Affairs, His Excellency Obaid Humaid Al Tayer, has stated that the UAE will implement VAT at the rate of five percent (5%) on 1 January 2018.  It is also announced that the Gulf Cooperation Council resolution covering the tax will come into effect in early 2018 in the UAE, but countries within the GCC region will have until 1 January 2019 to implement VAT.

What is Value Added Tax (VAT)?

A value-added tax (VAT), is a tax on goods and services tax (GST), is both a general consumption tax and indirect tax that is collected incrementally, based on the value added to goods and services.

VAT is a consumption tax because it is borne ultimately by the final consumer. It is not a charge on businesses.  VAT is also an indirect tax as it is paid to the VAT authorities by the seller of the goods, who is the "taxable person", but it is actually paid by the buyer to the seller as part of the selling price.

Why VAT is necessary?

All the experts across the region are assessing the “economic and social impact” of the VAT levy on businesses, as well as its impact on the UAE’s competitiveness, globally.   It is expected the the government revenue from the VAT will mitigate the harsh effect of the collapse of revenue generation from the oil.  It is also expected that VAT will further improve the economic environment

What are goods and services subject to VAT?

It is expected that VAT will not be levied on spending related to healthcare, education, 100 other essential items, local transportation, residential real estate, including long term leases on residential properties according to earlier reports.

I attended the VAT Training seminar on Friday, 22nd September. The training session was fabulous and has met my expectation, in fact beyond my expectation. The value for money was exceptional, where I know others have charged thrice than the price I was charged by Time Training and then the quality of session was very good. Seriously would recommend if some one tells me that they want VAT Training session. The trainer also ensured to cover most areas, if not all because of the absence of the ruling on VAT. Really happy.
