An Overview of the UAE Economic Substance Regulations (ESR) mandatory reporting with Q&A
In these uncertain times, managing cashflow and liquidity in a changing environment is paramount for businesses seeking to survive and strive
About this event
The ESR's adoption in the UAE enhances and benefits enterprises in the UAE by assisting with reputational concerns. It aids in the application of good governance requirements such as equal tax regimes as well as ensuring transparency and many more.
Business must provide certain standards for enterprises to demonstrate that their immediate economic activity takes place in the UAE and is not exclusively motivated by the desire to benefit from a low or no-tax jurisdiction. As a result, the destructive tax practice of profit shifting from higher tax jurisdictions to lower tax jurisdictions is prevented.
Many companies in the United Arab Emirates are being fined AED 20,000 simply for failing to submit the ESR notification. It is one of the smallest fines; there are additional fines that are far more expensive. The majority of the businesses that have been fined are unfamiliar with the regulations and the implications of non compliance with the Economic Substance Regulations in the UAE.
In this webinar, we are excited to present the Economic Substance Regulations amendments and refreshers. We will also outline the applicability, duties and responsibilities, filing and reporting procedures, deadlines, consequences and a Q&A discussion on the UAE's Economic Substance Regulations.
What will I learn
- ESR refreshers and information
- Applicability of ESR in UAE
- Recording and Filing Guidelines
- Deadlines and due dates
- Penalties and Consequences
