Having our base in a dynamic, multicultural and multiethnic region such as the UAE allows us to understand and appreciate the benefits of effective tax planning. Such planning can empower business with a competitive advantage when aiming for growth and expansion, even when markets are challenging. Organizations increasingly understand the importance of addressing issues relating to corporate structures; evaluating jurisdictions where cross-border transactions are planned; addressing transfer pricing issues; and managing taxes with a view to enhancing competitiveness.
Our team of qualified tax professionals combine international experience from the US, Europe, Asia and the Middle East and Africa region with local knowledge to provide viable commercial tax strategies tailored to address clients' specific needs. We bring significant value to our clients by customizing tax strategies to fit different industry, legal and financial frameworks and help to provide our clients with solutions to optimize their direct and indirect tax liabilities. We address a variety of business needs and help organizations align their businesses in a more tax efficient manner.
Perhaps the most significant change and best example of the changing framework in which businesses will operate was seen with the introduction of VAT in the UAE at the start of 2018. With vast multi-national experience, our team are able to understand and adapt to these changes and make sure that you are also kept informed ahead of the game and that the adjustments and enhancements you need to make are completed before it’s too late.
We are likely to see more reforms in the region’s tax framework and the technology and processes that will ensue. Our focus on being a part of that change rather than a responder to it will ensure you benefit from our focus on proactive change and our constant search and testing of new apps, software and technology that will work for you. Our Taxation Services team have assisted over 200 clients with their VAT needs both within the UAE and across the GCC.
