As part of the UAE’s commitment to prevent harmful tax practices (for example, tax evasion), the UAE introduced Economic Substance Regulations in April 2019, which were amended by Cabinet of Ministers Resolution No. 57 of 2020 concerning Economic Substance Regulations in August 2020. Ministerial decision No. 100 for the year 2020 on the issuance of directives for the implementation of the provisions of the Regulations, issued under Article 20 of the Regulations, provides further guidance and direction to entities carrying out one or more Relevant Activities.
  • The Regulations require UAE onshore and free zone companies and certain other business forms that carry out certain activities to maintain and demonstrate an adequate economic presence in the UAE relative to the activities they undertake.

 

  • The purpose of the Regulations is to ensure that UAE entities have sufficient economic activity undertaken within the UAE that is commensurate with the actual profits reported in the UAE.

 

  • The Regulations have been approved by the Organization for Economic Development and Cooperations (OECD) and EU Code of Conduct Group on Business Taxation (EU COCG) as meeting the necessary international standards to combat harmful tax practices.
