Frequently Asked Questions on VAT

 Back to FAQ

How are transfers of own goods between two Designated Zones treated under the UAE VAT law?

The supply, sale, or movement of own goods will be considered to be outside the scope of VAT only if both of the following conditions are met:

  • The goods transferred are not partly or entirely meant to be circulated, used, or altered in any manner during the transfer.

  • The transfer of goods is made as per the rules for customs suspension set by the GCC Common Customs Law. 

The FTA may require the owner of the goods to provide a financial guarantee for the payment of VAT, in case the conditions mentioned above are not met.
