In the UAE, the Ministry of Finance has recently published the new federal Corporate Income Tax (CIT) law effective financial years commencing on or after 1 June 2023. CIT implementation in the UAE will have a significant impact for Bahraini businesses with operations in the UAE or plans to commence operations in the UAE.
