VAT and Customs

Customs Duties are inextricably linked with VAT. Businesses that import goods may be obliged to be registered with Dubai Customs for Customs purposes and must ensure they adhere to the customs regulations.

In this course participants will gain an understanding of the interaction of customs with VAT. Customs Duty is a tariff or tax imposed on goods when transported across international borders. The purpose of Customs Duty is to protect each country's economy, residents, jobs and environment by controlling the flow of goods, especially restrictive and prohibited goods, into and out of the country.
