UAE Business Visitors can now start securing VAT refunds. It is now confirmed by the Federal TAX Authority that those who are qualified to secure refunds apply for refunds for VAT charges incurred in the UAE by business visitors in 2018, a move that seeks to further cement the country’s position as a business-friendly destination.
In order to be eligible for securing a tax refund:
The period of each refund claim shall be 12 calendar months, hence the first application can only be made after the end of 2018. The minimum amount of each TAX claim that may be submitted under this VAT Refunds for Foreign Businesses Scheme shall be AED 2,000.
