FTA confirms systems’ readiness of VAT Refund Scheme for Tourists
UAE- December 21, 2021:
The Federal Tax Authority (FTA) organized field tours to the ‘Self-Service Kiosks’ in Dubai International Airport to ensure the system’s readiness. (As part of the VAT Refund Scheme for Tourists)
The tour was arranged in line with FTA’s strategy to offer services that meet taxpayers’ aspirations and its commitment to abiding by Cabinet Decision No. (41) of 2018 on Introducing the Tax Refunds for Tourists Scheme.
During the tour, FTA Director-General Khalid Ali Al Bustani claimed that the services simplify VAT refund requests for tourists on purchases they make during their stay in the UAE. The streamlined procedure identifies taxes eligible for refunds, verifies purchased items are with the tourist and facilitates tax recovery.
