UAE Tax & Compliance Webinar: Key highlights of the UAE Tax & Compliance landscape in Q2 2022

Creative Zone Tax & Accounting (CZTA) presents a special webinar with Q2 2022 updates to the UAE Tax & Compliance landscape:

UAE Corporate Tax 2022

  • In Q1 2022, the UAE announced the introduction of a Federal Corporate Tax and companies have begun to prepare for upcoming changes. In Q2, the Ministry of Finance (MOF) launched a public consultation initiative ahead of the official release of the Corporate Tax legislation.
  • Mohamed Al Sayed (Head of Tax, CZTA) will dissect the released public consultation document with the aim to reduce complexity and clarify on what businesses in the UAE can expect from the new regulations.

Economic Substance Regulations

  • This quarter, UAE businesses also need to pay attention the Economic Substance Regulations (ESR). Many companies have their financial year ending in December; hence the obligation to abide by the ESR requirements is of first importance for those companies.
  • Zeeshan Toor (General Manager, CZTA) – an expert in the field of Compliance – will explain your company’s obligations under the ESR to remain safe and away from fines.

The UAE Tax & Compliance landscape can be challenging, especially for new businesses. This webinar is a ripe opportunity to refresh your basics the UAE’s tax laws and to ask our experts any questions you may have. Hannah Sparrow (Sr. Tax & Accounting Advisor, CZTA) will lead us through the basics of UAE Tax & Compliance and answer all your questions.

Moderating the session will be Creative Zone CEO, Mr. Lorenzo Jooris.
