VAT Calculation Process

Dubai is one of the countries who charge the lowest VAT rates. Which is of 5%.  

            VAT = Output Tax – Input Tax

Where the output tax is the amount received by a seller as a percentage of the selling price of the product.

And the input tax is the amount charged by a customer as a percentage of the cost of products or services used to create a final product.

            Example: Assume there is a company called X and the Company X purchased raw materials for an amount of AED 100,000.


            Input tax = AED 250,000 x 5%

                            = AED 12,500

Company X sells the goods that were purchased. (Assuming total amount of sales = AED 500,000)


            Output tax = AED 500,000 x 5%

                            = AED 25,000

Total Final payable VAT  = Output Tax – Input Tax

                                        = AED 25,000 – AED 12,500

                                        = AED 12,500

Therefor the Company X has to pay only an amount of AED 12,500 as VAT for the UAE government.
