# How is Corporate Tax in UAE Calculated?

## Rate of corporate tax in UAE

According to the UAE Ministry of Finance announcement in January 2022, Corporate Tax in UAE will apply at a standard rate of 9% with the following tax segmentations and rates:

• 0% for taxable income up to AED 375,000
• 9% for taxable income above AED 375,000
• A different tax rate (not yet specified) for large multinationals that meet specific criteria

## How is corporate tax calculated in UAE?

Corporate tax UAE is calculated at 9% of the net profit shown in the company's financial statements after deducting all applicable deductions and excluding the exempted income. Any foreign taxes paid will also be allowed for reduction from the profit shown in the financial statement.

The net profit derived after all deductions will be considered as taxable income. The 9 % corporate tax will be levied only if the taxable value exceeds AED 375,000.

Let’s look at the corporate tax calculation

## Example of corporate tax calculation in UAE

Abdul LLP, a trader based in Abu Dhabi, UAE, declared their annual financial statements for 2021. The net profit declared by Abdul LLP is AED 500,000. They are also eligible for deductions of 25,000. The type of deductions allowed for corporate tax deduction is yet to be made available by the authorities.

 Details Amount Net Profit (a) 500,000 Less : All deduction (b) 25,000 Net Income (c) 475,000 Less : Exempt Amount (d) 375,000 Taxable Income (e) 100,000 Corporate Tax @9% on (e) 9000

As shown in the table, first the net profit from the financial statement is reduced by deductions as allowed by the corporate rules. Later, the exempt amount of 375,000 is reduced to arrive at the taxable income. Thus, the corporate tax Abdul LLP will be paying is 9000 AED ( 100,000 @ 9%).
