Understanding Corporation Tax in the UAE

Historically, the UAE has always been known for its extremely low and often free business and personal taxes. In 2023, things have changed. The UAE Ministry of Finance (MoF) recently revealed their decision to introduce a new federal corporate tax system. This system is set to take effect for financial years beginning on or after June 1, 2023.

Often misunderstood to be a negative change, the new changes will enable further growth and investment in infrastructure, education and healthcare cross the region.

All companies, regardless of their type or jurisdiction, are required to register for corporate tax and a corporation tax return has to be submitted each year (even if no tax is due).

The current rate of corporation tax is 9% on net profits above AED 375,000. Simply, this equates to a tax free allowance of AED 375,000 (approx $100,000 USD).
