4 Things You Must Know About
ESR in Dubai

Economic Substance Regulation (ESR)

ESR applies to businesses engaged in ESR-related activities onshore, in free zones, and offshore. Such businesses must submit an annual ESR notification and report to the Federal Tax Authority (FTA). Additionally, businesses must pass the economic substance test if they earn profits from the relevant activity. ESR aims to deter investors from using the UAE as a tax haven and ensure compliance with the OECD’s.

Penalties for Non-compliance

Non-compliance with ESR regulations will result in hefty fines for businesses. Companies that fail to submit the required documents or meet the economic substance test’s requirements will be penalized with a Dhs20,000 fine. Businesses that provide false information or fail to submit their ESR returns will face a Dhs50,000 penalty.

Why was ESR

The UAE implemented ESR to deter investors from using it as a tax haven and to comply with the OECD’s and the EU’s open, strong, and legal standards for trade. Onshore businesses in the UAE must maintain and demonstrate adequate economic presence to comply with ESR regulations.
