Regarding the OECD’s Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) initiative, all countries must maintain tax transparency and implement measures to prevent harmful tax practices. UAE commits to this initiative through the introduction of corporate tax and hence, maintains transparency and fairness.

With such a competitive tax regime and alignment with international taxation practices, UAE aims to attract more foreign investment and business. Thus, it can improve its transformation into a global business hub and financial centre. It will also contribute to its development as a preferred country for business worldwide.
