Corporate Tax

Corporate Tax Introduction in the UAE:

UAE Authorities Introduced the new UAE corporate tax on 1st June 2023, a development sparking interest among businesses. While not all enterprises are feeling its impact, understanding its implications is key for those navigating these changes.

FTA – UAE Cabinet Decision No. 49:

On May 8, 2023, the UAE Cabinet of Ministers enacted Cabinet Decision No. (49), imposing a 9% federal corporate tax on businesses.

As per Ministry of Finance, Federal Corporate Tax rates are:
  • 0% for taxable income up to AED 375,000
  • 9% for taxable income above AED 375,000
  • Effective date of Corporate Tax in UAE:

    Corporate tax is effective from the financial year starting on or after 1st June, 2023

    Financial Statements for Evaluating Taxable Income:

    In Fresa, financial statements such as the Profit and Loss Account and Balance Sheet are utilized to assess taxable income and determine corporate tax liabilities.

    Profit and Loss Account:

    Profit and loss account reveals the performance of the business in terms of profit or loss for a specified period. Using this financial statement, net profit is calculated after considering the gross profit and all other indirect expenses or incomes. Corporate tax will be calculated on the net profit from this financial statement as below at 9 percent and related configurations are explained below with final output:

    Balance Sheet:

    Balance sheet summarizes the company’s assets, liabilities and the amount owned by the business owners. This financial statement broadly consists of assets and liabilities. A balance sheet helps the stakeholders to evaluate the efficiency in working capital, asset portfolio and the financial strength of the company. This will show the Corporate Tax liability if payable to FTA.
