Reverse Charge Mechanism Under UAE VAT
Article 48 of the Federal Decree-Law No. (8) of 2017 on Value Added Tax provides guidelines for reverse charge mechanism:
Article 48 of the Federal Decree-Law No. (8) of 2017
Understanding Reverse Charge Mechanism
Under UAE VAT Law, the Reverse Charge Mechanism (RCM) is one of the tax regimes that apply to imports of certain goods and services.
Moreover, the supplier does not charge VAT to the consumer in the Reverse Charge Mechanism (RCM) under UAE VAT Law. Instead, the buyer or end customer pays the tax directly to the government authority.
Therefore, on import of products, the provider is exempt from paying VAT, and the seller’s responsibility to record a VAT transaction is moved to the recipient.
Reverse Charge Mechanism applies to the following:
- Import of products and services from other Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and non-GCC nations.
- The supplier of these goods/services must be based outside of the UAE and may or may not have a business there.
- Supply of hydrocarbons to a registered receiver in the UAE for resale by a registered supplier.
- A registered provider delivers crude/refined oil to a registered receiver in the UAE.
- A registered provider delivers processed or unprocessed natural gas to a registered receiver in the UAE.
Input Tax Credit on Reverse Charge Mechanism under UAE VAT Law
Tax paid under Reverse charge is a liability. Input tax RCM to be claimed on RCM will be adjusted against your Output tax. The registered dealer has to account for VAT on import purchases and can claim input later.
