In line with the growing competitiveness of the world economy, the UAE’s shift towards a taxation economy is both commendable and necessary, as it encourages economic diversification and boosts transparency. In addition to the introduction of Excise duty and VAT in the UAE, there are several developments with respect to improving international tax compliance which merits attention.

The UAE is a global forum member and signatory of the Exchange of Information on Request (‘EOIR’) and Automatic Exchange of Information initiatives of the OECD, both being internationally agreed standards on exchange of information for tax purposes. While the UAE is largely compliant as per the EOIR rating round 1, the first exchange of information under CRS is scheduled to take place in 2018.

The UAE has also concluded an agreement with the USA to improve international tax compliance /reporting (commonly known as FATCA) and which has been implemented successfully with requisite reporting periods.
