As UAE’s (and some other GCC States) VAT regime, effective 1/1/2018, becomes closer, it is clear that multinationals (MNEs) need to prepare now re: VAT assessments, information required, system review, etc. to plan effectively for this new indirect tax.
Additionally, India’s new scheme also is in effect starting this year, and a similar exercise should be conducted re: operations conducted in India.
As VAT is an indirect tax, all MNE’s should ensure such local filings are coordinated with regional / global compliance governance controls.
EY’s Global Tax Alert provides additional details re: the GCC’s upcoming rules.
