Dubai - 100% Tax-Free

Dubai has been the business hub of the Middle East for many years and is continuously boosting the economy with new ventures. The city attracts trade from the entire world thanks to its favourable policies and year round business and networking events and opportunities. Neighbouring countries such as Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Oman are easily accessible from Dubai and rely on trade with the United Arab Emirates; the UAE prides itself on being the leading country in the East.


Why is Dubai Tax-Free?

Dubai’s tax-free policies may seem too good to be true and many people wonder how Dubai is tax-free. But, as one of the most successful countries in the world, it makes sense. The UAE’s main export is oil, a very profitable industry. And apart from oil, the UAE imports the vast majority of goods into the country. Dubai is very focused on attracting both skilled expats and global companies to the country and uses promising tax-free policies to achieve this goal. Of course, there are some exceptions; there are items or services that have a tax. However, for companies registered in the UAE and residents, they can enjoy a primarily tax-free life.
