Hot topics that may arise in taxation

The UAE does not levy income tax on individuals. However, it levies corporate tax on oil companies and foreign banks. Excise tax is levied on specific goods which are typically harmful to human health or the environment.

As of today, there is no personal and corporate income taxation in the United Arab Emirates. It means that the UAE provides the unique possibility of receiving a 100% tax-free salary in Dubai and other Emirates.

There are two types of taxes namely, direct taxes and indirect taxes. The implementation of both the taxes differs. You pay some of them directly, like the cringed income tax, corporate tax, and wealth tax etc while you pay some of the taxes indirectly, like sales tax, service tax, and value added tax etc.

People who pay income tax are generally individuals who earn an income (from a salary, commission, fees, etc.). Corporate tax includes tax paid by companies or close corporations, as well as trusts, on their annual income.
