UK–UAE Double Tax Treaty – What You Need to Know

UK–UAE Double Tax Treaty to Boost UAE Business and Economy

January, 2017

A boost in the UAE business and economy is strongly predicted following a Double Taxation Agreement between the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates that has been effective from 25th December 2016.

It is considered of major significance to the UAE business and economy as many UK corporations and individual investors will set up companies in the UAE.  This certainly is a welcome outcome for many individuals and corporations and it clearly provides an opportunity for investment.

The UAE-UK Double Tax Treaty attracts UK companies to the UAE and vice versa. It also provides security with cross-border investment and trade and strengthens the UK and the UAE’s business relationship.

The UAE is the ideal location to set up your business due to its:

  • World-class, unmatched infrastructure
  • Strategic location
  • Low tax base

…… and many, many more appealing advantages.

Quite Simply…

The UAE-UK Double Taxation Agreement regulates the prevention of double taxation on the incomes of companies or individuals in the United Arab Emirates who are doing business in the United Kingdom or vice versa.  So quite simply, it ensures that individuals are not paying taxes in both the UAE and the UK for the same income or on the investments they make.

As with other UAE Double Taxation Agreements, the UAE-UK Taxation Treaty also contains a provision for the reduction or removal of taxes on interests and dividends.  Furthermore, the UAE-UK Taxation Treaty regulates how the taxation of capital gains occurs.

It should be noted that, as with most double tax treaties, the UAE-UK Double Tax Treaty also contains provisions preventing tax evasion.

Good News for Pensioners too

Some of us believe that expats might be at risk if they leave their pensions in the UK.

Some pension funds might find it difficult or impossible to pay out what they are committed to paying in the future and they might simply not be able to find the money and will have no choice but to offer a lower pension.

This is scary but it has happened in some states in the USA.  As ever ageing populations successfully reach retirement age, these pension funds could be seriously underfunded.  There might simply not be enough for all of us.

Under the UAE-UK Double Taxation Convention, if you are a UK expat over the age of 55 and if you have pension funds in the United Kingdom, you can now cash out the full pension, completely tax-free.

Repeat…. if you are a UK citizen with a pension fund and you are over the age of 55, if you liquidate your pension fund, no UK tax will be withheld.  Be aware that there will be a record at Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs just in case you decide to return to the UK for good within five years!

If you are a UK expat with pensions in the UK, you might want to consider relocating to the UAE to enjoy a sunny, luxurious lifestyle.
