Excise Tax is an indirect tax levied by the UAE government on goods that are considered harmful to human health or the environment. The basic reason for implementing Excise Tax is to reduce the consumption of these goods, raising income for the government that can be spent for the public.
Excise Tax in the UAE was initially implemented in the UAE on certain goods with effect from 1st October 2017 through the Excise Tax Federal Decree-Law No. (7) of 2017. Later, with effect from 1st December 2019 few more products were added to the purview of excise tax vide Cabinet Decision No. 52 of 2019. All Taxable entities are entitled to register for Excise Tax in the UAE through the FTA’s online portal.
In the case of Carbonated, Energy, and Sweetened drinks, any powder, gel, concentrate, extract, or any other form that can be converted into a beverage is also considered as excisable good.
