February 15, 2024

In the United Arab Emirates (UAE), a taxable person refers to any individual or entity that is either already registered or mandated to register for Tax purposes under the Decree-Law. Broadly speaking, taxable persons encompass various entities, including corporations, partnerships, sole proprietorships, associations, as well as certain individuals like freelancers or self-employed professionals, provided their taxable transactions exceed the mandatory registration threshold.
