Join Our Exclusive Webinar on Corporate Tax in the UAE

The UAE’s Ministry of Finance has confirmed that the country will introduce a federal corporate tax for the financial years starting on or after 1st June 2023.

They’ve announced that the ‘UAE Corporate Tax regime’ will support investment activities and ensure the free flow of capital, trade, financing, and services.

So how will this affect your business?

We’ve teamed up with our partners at SME Souk powered by RAKBANK to explore this further.

Join us on the 23rd of June for an exclusive, invitation-only webinar that aims to help businesses confidently plan for the future.

Richard Dean will be speaking to leaders from Deloitte and MI Capital to help SMEs understand corporate tax in the UAE.

The session will cover key principles of the anticipated regulations and the focus areas for UAE companies.

As ever, the team from RAKBANK will be on hand to field any other questions on growing your business.
