Businesses with annual revenues exceeding AED 3.750,000 (Arab Emirate Dirham) or circa £722,950 will be liable to register for VAT in the UAE.; and
During the first phase of the implementation, businesses with revenues ranging between AED1.87m and AED3.75m may voluntarily opt to register under the VAT system.
As previously communicated, the UAE along with the other GCC Stages intend to implement a 5% VAT for goods and services from 1 January 2018. All six GCC States agreed on the main aspects of implementing VAT across the region, with expected exceptions for certain sectors, such as healthcare and education.
