Regular Excise Tax Health Checks to Tackle Regulatory Struggles

The UAE has introduced the excise tax in 2017 on certain products. In 2019, the scope of excise tax was expanded to include more products. This change has affected many business aspects of companies, including margins, pricing, cash flows, documentation, bookkeeping, IT systems, demand for the product, contract terms, and compliances.

Hence, companies must first ensure that excise tax will be levied on their products or not. If yes, they have to fulfil many requirements, such as making representation to the governing bodies, filing returns, and analysing the overall impact of the tax.

Avyanco conducts excise tax health checks to ensure the taxability of your products. Our experts make sure your business is in compliance with the excise tax regulations.
