As an organization the VAT law UAE is fast adapting to the changes due to VAT law UAE implementation since January 2018. We would like to provide an opportunity to our learners who wish to save on the 5% additional ‘VAT law UAE’ charge to be levied on all payments from the start of the year 2018.
Why will VAT law be applicable in UAE?
VAT will be another wellspring of bringing incomes for governments up in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC).
The main evaluation is that the UAE will produce more than Dh12 billion extra incomes in the principal year after usage of this new expense.
GCC nations have chosen to actualize tax assessment as a component of the legislatures’ endeavors to expand incomes with regards to sharp decrease in oil costs. The International Monetary Fund has been suggesting financial union in the GCC through broadening of government incomes and diminishment of endowments.
The government has been thinking about the need to differentiate salary sources and this is considerably more the case given the advancements adversely influencing government incomes in the district, for example, lessened pay from oil incomes.
From 1st January 2018, Value Added Tax (VAT) has come into effect.
What is VAT?
VAT is a transaction tax, chargeable on the sale of goods/products and services. The standard rate of VAT is5%. For Lincoln University of Business and Management FZE, a leading PRIVATE Education Services provider, the supply of academic and other education services made in return for an explicit charge shall be taxable. As a VAT-registered business, LUBM will be required to charge VAT on its services were prescribed under the Law. This would be in addition to the stated prices. Please note that as of 1 January 2018, the fees charged by Lincoln University of Business and Management FZE on all its services provided (the “Fee”) will be subject to VAT.
Invoices / Receipts Issued Before 1 January 2018
The Regulations once issued will determine whether, and to what extent, VAT is due on invoices/receipts issued before 1 January 2018, where the actual supply is deemed to be provided on or after the implementation date of the VAT. We, therefore, reserve the right to raise an additional invoice for VAT due on the portion of services charged in 2017, but supplied, consumed or otherwise derived after implementation.
