Since 2018, the Value Added Tax has been a part of taxation in the entire United Arab Emirates. It is the only tax of its kind and is added to the most goods and services in Dubai. In the city, the general VAT rate of 5% is applied to most goods and services while the exempted goods and services get 0% rate provided they meet certain specific conditions.

What Are the VAT Exemptions and Specialities

There are several exemptions that fall under the VAT legislation where certain goods and services enjoy a 0% VAT rate. Following are the goods and services that enjoy a 0% VAT rate.

  • Goods and Services that are exported outside VAT implementing
  • Gulf Cooperation Council (GOC)member states
  • With the supply of crude oil/natural gas
  • International transportation
  • The first supply of residential real estate
  • Specific areas such as education and health care
  • Certain financial services

The ensuing supply of residential real estate are excluded from the VAT. Additionally, VAT is not applied to transactions involving bare land or domestic passenger transportation.

Understanding VAT Regulations and Implications for Companies in UAE Free Zones

Furthermore, some transactions in goods and services between companies established in UAE designated Free Zones may not be subjected to VAT. However, the services used inside the designated Free Zones are subjected to VAT in accordance to the general application of the UAE VAT legislation.

The statutory VAT registration level for enterprises with UAE residents is AED 375,000, and the voluntary registration threshold is AED 187,500. For non-resident companies providing supplies for which the UAE VAT must be charged, there is no registration threshold. Grouping VAT is permitted as long as certain requirements are met. There are certain documentation and record-keeping needs, like the need to send tax invoices and VAT returns (quarterly or monthly depending on the FTA’s allotment).

In theory, excess input VAT can be reclaimed from the FTA after following a specified process. As an alternative, VAT credits can be carried over and subtracted from subsequent output VAT. Fines and penalties may apply to companies who don’t follow their VAT duties. Penalties come in both fixed and tax-geared forms.
