With tax and VAT being relatively new to the UAE, it is important to understand the details of the law in order to avoid the steep penalties for non-compliance.

At Horizons & Co we provide a rounded tax service which includes advice on; value added tax (VAT), mergers & acquisitions tax, inbound tax and tax risk management. We provide tax advice on private equity groups, investment funds, joint ventures and sovereign wealth funds.

Prior to and since the introduction of the new VAT law our advice supports clients with their compliance obligations and relevant VAT strategies, aimed at reducing the resulting costs to a company or organisation.

When handling an M&A transaction, our corporate lawyers will highlight any possible tax risks and offer advice on the most effective means for structuring joint ventures, reorganisations, mergers and acquisitions, ensuring they are tax efficient.  We negotiate tax clauses and tax input with regards to sale and purchase agreements, and provide due diligence on purchaser and vendor tax, to identify any tax risks.
When organisations or individuals invest in the UAE, we advise on the local tax implications and structuring tax efficient operations. Our team assist clients with developing a full tax risk management strategy, including drafting and reviewing contracts and VAT contributions.
Our clients come from a variety of industries including banking & finance, real estate & construction, oil & gas, energy services and healthcare.
