Yesterday, the United Arab Emirates announced it would impose a federal corporate tax of 9% on business profits. The Ministry of Finance said in a statement the tax will be effective from June 1, 2023.

The tax will be levied from all corporations except those involved in "extraction of natural resources". Businesses with profits up to 375 thousand dirhams will be categorised as small businesses and will be exempted from the tax.

The Emirates has long been a low tax country with no personal tax. The Ministry said the tax was being imposed to combat tax avoidance and to realign the country on major issues such as the digitalisation of the global economy. It may be linked to a recent international agreement on a minimum global corporate tax rate but the Ministry did not elaborate.
