Value Added Tax coming to the UAE in 2018

The tax-free status of the six Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries is going to change due to the agreement on implementation of VAT in the period commencing from 1 January 2018, and by latest 1 January 2019. The UAE and Saudi Arabia have already formally announced that they will introduce VAT as from January 1, 2018.
It is crucial for businesses to start the preparation process early. Even though the details of the VAT legislation are not fully available yet, an early understanding on the potential impact on business will reduce friction in the ongoing process.
Finnish Business Council together with Rethink is pleased to welcome companies to join for a breakfast on 8 June at 8:30-9:30 at Radisson Blue Media City to hear the latest information on VAT in the UAE.
