United Arab Emirates Tax Information

As of 1 November 2021, Vultr charges a 5% Value Added Tax (VAT) to customers with a tax location in the United Arab Emirates.

The VAT is levied on the import and supply of goods and services at each stage of production and distribution, and includes the services provided by Vultr in the United Arab Emirates. This tax does not affect business-to-business sales. In these cases, the reverse charge mechanism is in effect.

This complies with the Value Added Tax introduced on 1 January 2018 by the United Arab Emirates, which forms part of the Cooperation Council for the Arab Gulf States (GCC). The UAE coordinates VAT implementation with other GCC countries because of the connection with them through the economic agreement between the GCC states and the GCC Customs Union.
