Economic growth in Dubai will enter a period of rapid acceleration post-2020 according to the International Monetary Fund. Upon adhering to the recommendations of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC) countries (i.e. UAE, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and Bahrain) have agreed ‘in principle’ to the GCC VAT Agreement to levy common indirect taxes in the GCC region. The increased indirect tax revenue will help GCC countries continue to provide high-quality public services while reducing their dependence on oil and other hydrocarbon products as a source of revenue. Like many other countries across the world, businesses in the Gulf will now have to adhere to stringent VAT regulatory and statutory compliances and report the same on a periodic basis.

Like many other countries across the world, businesses in the Gulf will now have to adhere to stringent VAT regulatory and statutory compliances and report the same on a periodic basis. We have vast experience in providing audit, consultation, direct tax, regulatory, outsourcing and transfer pricing services to our clients across sectors like power/energy, financial services and construction/engineering industries. 

With a new VAT tax regime introduced this year, companies need to align themselves to these compliances. Dealing with these compliances can be complicated for UAE tax residents.
