Excise Tax

Excise Tax

The UAE government introduced excise tax on carbonated drinks, tobacco products and energy drinks in 2017 and has decided to charge the same on e-cigarettes, e-liquids, and sweetened drinks.

Excise tax is levied on specific goods with the purpose of reducing consumption of  such commodities that are harmful to human health or the environment. The taxation raises government revenues that can be used for public services.
