Value added tax in UAE

What is VAT ?
VAT stands for Value Added Tax. It is also known as the consumption tax which is applied on almost all the goods according to the expenses that have been spent on the production of these items during their making. Every country has their own laws for VAT, so the rate depends on the location. VAT is already implemented in 90 percent of the countries around the world. The countries in the Middle East are yet to implement this consumption tax and make up the remaining 10 percent of the countries. It is a source through which revenues for the government are raised.
