At an event held in Dubai, representatives of the UAE Ministry of Finance, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development and the private sector celebrated the thirtieth anniversary of the signing of such agreements – the first treaty took place in 1989 with France. In recent years, the UAE has also implemented reforms to combat international tax evasion. DUBAI/JERUSALEM, Oct 15 (Reuters) – The United Arab Emirates and Israel have reached an interim agreement to avoid double taxation to encourage investment between the two countries, the United Arab Emirates` finance ministry said on Thursday. Such tax treaties help to ensure that similar taxes are levied by two countries on the same taxpayer and are intended to promote the exchange of goods, services and capital. South Africans from the United Arab Emirates residing in South Africa may soon have to pay foreign income tax. Under a double taxation agreement with the United Arab Emirates, a provision of South African tax law provides for a preventive exemption from foreign income tax, also known as „expatriate tax“. This means that South African residents who are employed for more than 183 days out of the country and for an uninterrupted period of more than 60 days for a period of 12 months are not subject to South African taxation. However, an amendment that will come into force next March will limit this exemption to income of up to R1 million (Dh252.950). . .
