They will do the test for you for free at the airport (there may be a long queue, but that's all) if you fly to Dubai. If you fly out of Dubai then yes, you need to provide ANY airline with a negative Coshit test no older than 96 hours. This is my own experience as of August of this year.I'm going to Dubai on Thursday and Emirates confirmed that I need a PCR Test certificate 96 hours before I fly. I have also informed my client who will get one also.
If you book with Emirates you get free COVID cover giving you €100 a night quarantine cover and €150K medical expenses cover.
I would definitely advise you to hire a business consultant in UAE before you start any business there. From residency to business management they will guide your way.
What would be a good jurisdiction?and if necessary withdraw all money from the UAE business account every month to a private account in a good jurisdiction for money parking
VAT registration is headache for freelancer.Why not just switch to being a freelancer in UAE then no audit required or company structure and work from your own account.
4. Am I allowed to register for VAT?
If you are making between AED 187,500 per year and AED 375,000 per year then you may register for VAT if you choose to. If you make more than AED 375,000 per year, you must register for VAT. For more information, please visit Value Added Tax (VAT) - The Official Portal of the UAE Government
If you don’t register, it’s always a good idea to keep good accounts just in case the policy changes in the future.
that's a true fact...only gold-diggers and wannabes will tell you that VAT and accounting is complicated (regardless of your status, ie, freelancer, one-man band shop, DIFC freezone or mainland LLC partner)...WHEN your customers are outside the GCC area...they will be just preying on naivety, of course, so don't fall for that (c)trapIf someone has 0% rated sales due to all of his clients being outside UAE / GCC, then it is 5mins DIY job every 3 months.
Tend to agree.
due to this:Why you think so?
