Excise Tax - UAE

What is an excise tax?
An excise tax is an indirect tax imposed on the sale of a particular commodity. These goods are taxable if they are imported into the UAE, manufactured in the UAE, or stockpiled in the UAE. 

Excise tax is levied on products that are harmful to people or the environment. The primary purpose of the excise tax is to reduce the consumption of those particular goods to restrict unhealthy practices.

In certain scenarios, goods will be physically labeled to show that the excise tax has already been paid to the government.
