New Tax Rules In Dubai

Taxes are changing in Dubai and, after 18 months of fluctuation, they have settled at:

  • 10% Service Charge
  • 7% Municipality Fee
  • 5% VAT

Typically we find that hotels in Dubai quote accommodation rates as excluding these costs, but meeting facilities and F&B are invoiced inclusive of charges. This can be complicated, so we’ve made it simple.

Rest assured that your venue consultants have been briefed on the changes and will be able to resolve any issues for you.

If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to contact your BCD M&E account manager or team member.
