Tax Information in Dubai UAE

Hi mates,

Can someone guide me, if we are not us person and living in tax free region like Dubai, UAE, and don’t have A Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN), So in this case what should we put in TIN area, Will it still deduct 28% from my gross sales?

Thanks for your quick response.

Be sure to prepare your account for taxes and you are not a US person …
I am also someone who does not exist in my taxes …
But this deduction is not for taxes, but the deduction is made to the authors and some things
See this article:

The United Arab Emirates have not yet sign a double taxation agreement with the United States of America (UAE is not on the list of countries).

So your options are:

A. fill out the W-8 form without Tax ID = 30% US Royalty Withholding Tax on US sales only
or
B. not fill out the W-8 form = 28% US Backup Withholding Tax on all your sales

Great! Many Thanks for your help,

which one will be the better option?

A or B ?

Thanks alot :slight_smile:

Unless more than 94%, or thereabouts, of your sales are from the US… go for A.

Got it, Thank you
