Dubai, Untited Arab Emirates - Residence and Tax Benefits

For many years Dubai has pursued a policy of redevelopment and of attracting foreigners.


The UAE do not levy any personal income tax.

Also, wealth and inheritance tax do not exist.

Nevertheless, as always, foreign income may be subject to taxes in the country of the origin of the income. This taxation at the source may be eliminated or mitigated through double taxation treaties of which the UAE has 94 in place. This shows that a careful evaluation of the individual situation and the weighing of restructuring options is essential before deciding a transfer of residence.
