The UAE Federal Government introduced the Value Added Tax (VAT) on a range of goods and services, effective from January 1, 2018. The emergence of new functional roles associated with indirect tax policy, administration and regulation, will require the training and professionalization of new cadres of UAE Nationals to join the strategic governmental vision. VAT implementation has a broad scope of impacts in the UAE economy.
The Centre of Excellence for Applied Research & Training (CERT) launched its VAT Academy with the mission to create a framework of tax competencies and capacity development, through bespoke training programs and certifications for the UAE public and private sector. CERT has therefore built on its solid industry experience preparing UAE Nationals employed in public and private institutions, through the engagement of taxation experts and HCT faculty specialized in training in the areas of Accounting, Auditing, Public Policy, Compliance and Tax-related technology.
