As a member of the OECD Inclusive Framework, the UAE has implemented Economic Substance Regulations (ESR) to ensure that companies operating within the country demonstrate a genuine economic presence. The goal of these regulations is to combat tax avoidance practices and promote transparency in business operations. The ESR requires companies to meet certain substance requirements, including having an adequate number of qualified employees, physical office space, and operational expenses commensurate with their business activities. The implementation of ESR is a step towards ensuring a level playing field for businesses operating in the UAE also promoting the country's reputation as a transparent and reliable business hub.
