INT.
Value Added Tax’s (VAT) fundamental nature is that it’s not taxation
imposed on businesses. Instead, it’s a type of tax that’s collected by
business entities operating in the UAE that is rather imposed on end
consumers by the local tax authorities.
VAT TREATMENT OF DIFFERENT
TYPES OF INSURANCE IN UAE
Consistent with VAT’s essential nature, taxation of insurance
products or related services differ in terms of liability of charges.
Issued by the UAE Federal Tax Authority or FTA, the VAT Guide or
VATGIN1 has provided clarifications on VAT rates of several different
insurance-related products and services.
GENERAL INSURANCE
General insurance includes motor insurance, fire and theft, real estate
insurance, and contents insurance. Liability of charges will be as
follows:
Zero rate – if the recipient of the general insurance is a resident
outside any GCC implementing state, is located outside of the UAE,
and performance of insurance service isn’t received by someone who
is in the UAE that won’t be allowed in recovering incurred VAT.
Standard rate – if the recipient of the general insurance is a UAE
resident
LIFE INSURANCE
This category includes individual insurance, group insurance, life
annuity, term, and investment-linked policy. In all cases, the
following liability of charges apply:
Exempt from VAT – if the recipient of life insurance is a UAE resident
Zero rate – if the recipient of life insurance is a resident that’s outside
any GCC implementing state, is located outside of the UAE, and
performance of insurance service isn’t received by a legal entity in
UAE who wouldn’t be able to process VAT recovery for VAT incurred.
INTERNATIONAL TRANSPORT
This includes insurance for the transportation of passengers and aviation or marine cargo.
VAT treatment for such will be zero-rated with respect to international transportation
services with the exemption of travel insurance.
International transportation is defined as:
Transportation of products or passengers which starts from the UAE then ends outside of
UAE
Transportation of products or passengers which starts outside UAE and ends in UAE
Transportation of passengers that are from a place in UAE onto another place in UAE
either by land, air or sea of international transport of passengers if final destination place
or 1st place of departure is outside UAE
Transportation of goods that are from UAE to another place within UAE if services are
supplied for the purpose or part of international transportation of products either from
UAE to any place outside UAE or from any place outside UAE onto UAE.
Insurance with international transportation includes the act of arranging any form of
insurance.
