TAX & Comprehensive Double Taxation Agreements


 As a business owner, every transaction you plan to make may have direct or indirect tax consequences. Tax Domicile Certificate is an official document issued by the UAE Ministry of Finance to individuals and corporate entities residing in the UAE. Based on this certificate, UAE tax resident can be exempted from taxes in his home country as he is considered a tax resident of the UAE.

MOF entered into Comprehensive Double Taxation Agreements / Arrangement (DTAs) with more than 80 countries around the world to initiate single tax regime giving advantages to companies registered in UAE.

To qualify for tax residency individual has to obtain UAE resident visa, receive regular monthly payments into his/her bank account in the UAE (i.e. salary, etc.) and maintain resident status by entering the UAE not less than one time per half year.

UAE tax resident qualifies for Tax Domicile Certificate one year after UAE resident visa is issued and stamped in individual’s passport.
