Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 18 Nov 17UAE’s VAT
This is a sudden development from the UAE government, which most of the expatriates may not have expected (“Businesses told to pay excise tax before November 15”, Gulf News, November 13). All these days, people living in UAE were enjoying the benefit of tax free for consumption of water, electricity and other items, which is the main attraction of working in the UAE. Maybe in the initial period of introduction, people may hesitate but in time, they will become accustomed this new concept.
