The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has introduced a new corporate tax regime, effective from June 1, 2023. The new regime has a standard rate of 9%, which is one of the lowest corporate tax rates in the world.
The new regime applies to all businesses in the UAE, except for:
- Government entities
- Government-controlled entities
- Businesses engaged in extractive activities
- Businesses engaged in non-extractive natural resource activities
Free zone entities are also exempt from the new regime, but they can choose to opt in.
The new regime has a number of features that are designed to be taxpayer-friendly. For example, there is a AED 375,000 taxable income threshold, below which no tax is payable. There are also a number of deductions and exemptions available.
The new regime is a significant change for the UAE tax landscape. However, it is designed to be simple and easy to comply with. Businesses that are already familiar with the UAE tax system should be able to make the transition to the new regime relatively easily.
