  • Share:

The Federal Tax Authority has completed preparations to launch the “VAT refunds for business visitors scheme” from April 2.

The scheme aims to reciprocate the efforts made in countries that offer VAT refunds to visiting UAE businesses,” the FTA said in a statement.

To be eligible for the VAT refund, the first condition is that foreign businesses must not have a place of establishment or fixed establishment in the UAE or in any of the VAT-implementing GCC states.
