Self-service kiosks have been set up across all the ports included in the Tax Refunds for Tourists Scheme in order to allow tourists to recover Value Added Tax (VAT), when leaving the UAE.
Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (ADNEC), on Thursday announced that it has obtained the Federal Tax Authority (FTA), License for waiver from Value Added Tax (VAT), for all international companies and organisations participating in or holding shows and conferences at its venues across the UAE with effect from June 1, 2019.
UAE has set a daily maximum limit of Dhs7,000 for cash refunds of Value Added Tax (VAT) for tourists applying through the Tax Refunds for Tourists Scheme.
"Refunding taxes for legally eligible applicants is a direct transaction between the registered business and the FTA, and does not call for any intermediaries."
The Asian defendant, 23, was on duty at a Dubai airport under a tax refund company when he stole Dhs97,703 value added tax (VAT) refunds belonging to departing tourists.
