Corporate Tax in UAE

The Corporate Tax is a direct tax applied on the net income or profit of corporations and businesses.

The UAE Ministry of Finance announced the establishment of a federal corporate tax effective for fiscal years starting off on or after 1 June 2023 on 31 January 2022.
In general, these taxes are estimated based on the accounting net profit/income of a corporation after adjusting for specific items as prescribed by UAE Corporate Tax decree law.

Tax Experts are required for businesses because tax laws and regulations can be complex and ever-changing, making it challenging for businesses to comply with the law. Tax consultants have the expertise and experience to navigate the tax laws and regulations and help businesses minimize their tax liability through effective tax planning and strategy.
Tax advisors can also assist with tax compliance and preparation, and handle tax disputes and audits. Additionally, tax advisors can provide valuable insights and advice on tax-saving opportunities, such as tax incentives and deductions. In short, tax advisors help businesses save time, money, and ensure compliance with tax laws.
