VAT Registration and Its Impact

VAT Registration And Its Impact

Value Added Tax (VAT)

Value Added Tax or VAT is a tax on the consumption or use of goods and services levied at each point of sale. VAT is a form of indirect tax and is used in more than 180 countries around the world. The end-consumer ultimately bears the cost. Businesses collect and account for the tax on behalf of the government.

VAT Registration – What is VAT registration?

VAT registration is the process of listing your business with the government as active in production and sales. Once you are VAT registered, you will become eligible for the return of VAT.

Implication of VAT on individuals

VAT, as a general consumption tax, will apply to the majority of transactions in goods and services. A limited number of exemptions may be granted.

As a result, the cost of living is likely to increase slightly, but this will vary depending on an individual’s lifestyle and spending behaviour. If an individual spends mainly on those things which are relieved from VAT, he is unlikely to see any significant increase.

The government will include rules that require businesses to be clear about how much VAT an individual is required to pay for each transaction. Based on this information, individuals can decide whether to buy something.

Implication of VAT on businesses

Businesses will be responsible for carefully documenting their business income, costs and associated VAT charges.

Registered businesses and traders will charge VAT to all of their customers at the prevailing rate and incur VAT on goods/services that they buy from suppliers. The difference between these sums is reclaimed or paid to the government.

Reasons To Start Your Own Business In The UAE

 Reasons To Start Your Own Business In The UAE

 

Why Choose Dubai As An Investment Location?

The Dubai economy enjoys a competitive combination of cost, market and environmental advantages that create an ideal and attractive investment climate for local and expatriate businesses alike. In fact, these advantages not only rank Dubai as the Arabian Gulf’s leading multi-purpose business center and regional hub city, but they place it at the forefront of the globe’s, dynamic and emerging market economies.
Dubai, with its ancient commercial and seafaring traditions, has long been recognized as the Middle East region’s leading trading hub and has emerged as its key re-export center. In more recent years, the Emirate has become a major venue for a number of growing, profitable industries and activities .

 

Political And Economic Stability: Dubai is part of the UAE which is a low-crime and politically-stable country. Also, the UAE enjoys financial and monetary stability. Its well-developed, sophisticated banking system features ,extensive credit facilities and ample liquidity. The Emirate’s emerging capital markets are built on a basis of leading-edge technologies and sound regulatory systems. The government has a long, consistent commitment to pro-business, liberal economic policies including the protection of intellectual property rights. The UAE benefits from stable and harmonious industrial relations. Finally, there is a well defined, sound legal framework for business and a clear set of ownership rules. Foreigners are permitted ownership rights of up to 49% for limited liability companies established within the Emirate of Dubai and up to 100% for professional companies, branches and representative offices of foreign companies and free zones enterprises. All of these factors reflect positively in Dubai’s being assigned an investment grade rating for fixed income investment by Moody’s Investors Service.

 

Large, available workforce

One of the biggest struggles when starting up any new enterprise is finding the right people to work with. Dubai wins again. Its liberal and cost-effective labour laws, along with its desirable working location, make it both easy and – perhaps most importantly – rather affordable, to recruit employees from almost anywhere in the world. The ease at which expatriate workers – who make up a staggering 90% of the city’s labour force – can enter and exit the UAE also makes it easier for businesses .

Ease of starting your own business

New markets, new consumers, the rise of Internet technology – Dubai is a land of booming opportunities.

A recent survey by HSBC revealed that Dubai is ranked second-best city in the world after Singapore for expats looking to start a business. The survey highlights that the UAE’s entrepreneurial environment, job prospects and better salaries as primary factors attracting expats from across the world.

“Despite the volatility in the global economy and insecurity in job markets, the UAE’s diverse business landscape and its position as a hub in the Middle East means that it continues to be an attractive destination for expats from across the world,” .

No Taxation. 

The UAE’s economy in general is considered to be the most liberal and most diversified in the region. Dubai applies NO TAXATION policy for almost all types of business activities with exception of branches of international banks, hotels and major oil and gas companies. The following taxes are NOT applied in Dubai:

  • Personal income tax;
  • Capital gains tax;
  • Value-added tax;
  • Withholding tax;
  • Corporate tax.

Dubai Free Zones.

 Free Zone is a designated tax-free area, where foreigners can set up and do business in Dubai with full ownership and without partnering with a local emirati partner or agent. All Free Zones vary from one to another and offer licenses in various sectors. For example, there is a Free Zone for healthcare providers (Dubai Healthcare City or DHCC); there is a Free Zone for educational and training institutions (Dubai Knowledge Village); there is a Free Zone for media companies (Dubai Media City), there is a Free Zone for financial institutions and services providers (Dubai International Financial Center or DIFC) and many others. There are more than 20 Free Zones currently operating in Dubai itself.

Residency Visa.  

If you have a company in Dubai and in other Emirates of the UAE in general, you will be eligible to get a UAE Residency Visa for yourself, your family members and for your expatriate employees. Having a UAE Residency Visa will give many benefits such as:

  • you can open a current account in UAE Banks

UAE approves 100% ownership of companies, new ten-year visa

Changes to Foreign Ownership and Visa Rules Announc

Residency system amended

“The UAE will remain a global incubator for exceptional talents and a permanent destination for international investors. Our open environment, tolerant values, infrastructure and flexible legislation are the best plan to attract global investment and exceptional talents to the UAE,” stated Shaikh Mohammad.

He also directed the Ministry of Economy, in coordination with the concerned parties, to implement the resolution and follow up on its developments, and to submit a detailed study in the third quarter of this year.

At a meeting of the Cabinet of the Council of Ministers of the United Arab Emirates (“UAE”), the UAE Government decided to allow foreign investors to own 100% of their businesses in the UAE and approved sweeping changes to the current UAE visa system.

The changes were announced yesterday evening (20 May 2018), on Twitter, by Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and the Ruler of Dubai.

 

  • What Are The Changes That Have Been Announced?

Anyone coming into the UAE as a professional or as an investor is typically granted a residence visa of two years, which is renewable. This has now been changed to a ten-year visa for investors and professionals in highly skilled fields such as engineering, medicine and science. Students will be given a special five-year visa, while those who consistently perform well and earn top grades will be granted a ten-year visa as well.

Another very significant change is in the ownership of companies. Businesses within the UAE are divided into two main categories: mainland businesses and freezone businesses.

At present, mainland businesses can be partially owned by expatriate entrepreneurs, but must have a UAE national as a majority shareholder in the company. Freezone companies, on the other hand, can have full foreign ownership and are subject to separate regulations depending on the freezone.

With the new regulations, every business, whether mainland or freezone, will be able to have 100% foreign ownership without the need for an Emirati partner.

  1. 10-year residence visas

The system will grant investors and talents up to 10-year residency visas for specialists in medical, scientific, research and technical fields, as well as for all scientists and innovators.

It also grants five-year residency visas for students studying in the UAE, and 10-year visas for exceptional students.

The Cabinet also issued instructions to conduct a review of the residency system with a view to extending residency permits for those sponsored by their parents after completing their university studies to facilitate their future residence in the UAE.

 

    2. When will these changes come into effect?

According to Sheikh Mohammed’s messages, the new changes will be implemented starting with the third quarter of this year. Previous reports suggested that the new investment law should be published by the end of the year. It remains to be seen whether the visa changes will be provided for in the investment law or will be implemented earlier through Cabinet decision or similar legislation.

When implemented, these changes are likely to significantly alter the business environment in the UAE and have a tangible impact on the majority of UAE based businesses and (at least) certain categories of residents. While many questions remain unanswered for now, it is likely that more information will become available in the near future. If you are concerned or have any questions as to how the proposed changes will affect your business in the UAE, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Company formation in Dubai

Company Formation 

Company formation is the process of legally incorporating a business as a limited company or LLP at Companies House. Upon formation, a company becomes a legal individual with its own rights, responsibilities and liabilities.The process is also referred to as ‘company incorporation’ and ‘company registration’.

When you incorporate a limited company, it becomes an individual ‘person’ in the eyes of the law. Incorporated businesses are completely separate from their owners in terms of finances, liabilities, contractual agreements, and ownership of property and assets.

 

How easy is it to register a company in Dubai?

In most cases, the Dubai Company Act requires a foreign investor to have a local partner who will own the majority interest. The only places investors may incorporate fully foreign owned companies are the Dubai free zones. The company registration requiremts will be different from case to case because of the type of company one chooses to open in Dubai. According to the Company Law, investors may set up the following types of companies in Dubai:

  • – limited liability companies,
  • – private and public joint stock companies,
  • – partnerships,
  •  branch offices,
  • – subsidiaries,
  • – free zone limited liability companies,
  • – free zone establishments.

For those seeking a simpler form of doing business in Dubai, the sole proprietorship could be an appropriate choice. Depending on the selected type of company and licensing requirements, the registration procedure with the Dubai Companies Registration Office will take several days.

 

Points to be kept in mind before incorporating a business.

  1.  Select a local sponsor, a UAE national for local business startupThere are plenty of business opportunities available in Dubai, as well as in the other Emirates of UAE. However, if you really want to start a business which must exploit the potential of Dubai then you need a locally registered LLC business.

    A UAE national must be taken as a 51% partner who is called a local ‘sponsor’. A local company provides the freedom to locate the business anywhere in the city. For a business startup in Dubai, this is a boon because it affords the best choice of locations to suit your budget.

  2. Select a Free Zone if you wish to own your business 100  Free zone Company in Dubai, UAE                Keep in mind that the only way for a business startup in UAE to start without taking a UAE national acting as your partner is to locate your business in one of the Free Zones.For a business startup, Free Zones offer three great advantages

    Visas are allowed for almost all businesses.
