The UAE is introducing Value Added Tax (VAT) from 1 January 2018, along with GCC countries, who are planning to introduce VAT most likely from the same date or beginning of 2019. The UAE has already announced that the registration for VAT would start by third quarter of 2017 and recently introduced the landmark Federal Law No. (8) of 2017 on Tax Procedures which sets the foundation for regulating the administration and collection of taxes (VAT and Excise duty).

Hence, the key question for business right now is how to prepare and how long will it take my business to get ready? If you have not already began, NOW is the time for you to start preparing and analyzing in detail how VAT will impact your business. With this in mind, the businesses in the region will need to focus on developing a holistic VAT strategy to manage the associated costs and demands on internal resources.
