    The Ministry of Economy has extended the deadline for registration of AML and CFT till the end of April for “Designated Non-Financial Businesses and Professions” (DNFBP`s). The decision for extension was made due to the large number of companies seeking registration and also considering the COVID-19 situation.

    Sectors that come under “Designated Non-Financial Businesses and Professions” category are Real Estate Sector, Auditors, Dealers of precious metals and gemstones, and Corporate Service Providers. The registration has been made mandatory for all the companies on the goAML system and automatic reporting system for sanctions lists. All the necessary requirements for complying with Federal Law No. 20 of 2018 should be taken post registration.

    All companies are requested to make use of the extension to avoid heavy fines that shall be imposed on those who register after the deadline; starting from AED 50000, it can go up to AED 5 million. For those that fail to register could have their license suspended or can even result in closure of the company.

    Assistant Under-secretary for the supervision and follow-up sector at the Ministry of Economy, Abdullah Sultan Al Fan Al Shamsi, said, “Due to the increased level of response in the business sector and non-financial professions identified for mandatory registration, the Ministry of Economy decided, in coordination with its partners from the relevant government agencies, to extend the grace period granted to the target companies and give them more time until the end of the current month to complete the registration process and begin taking the necessary legal measures to comply with the requirements of the law and its implementing regulations.”

    “The goal is to ensure compliance and not impose violations, and the decision was made taking into consideration of the state of several business sectors and companies that are facing trouble due to the pandemic and its repercussions on a global scale. The Ministry of Economy is keen on building a solid and positive relationship with the private sector based on the principle of partnership”, he added.

    He also emphasized the role of non-financial business and private sector as a partner in supporting the government to deal with combat money laundering and in building a safe and stable economic environment.

    Al Shamsi pointed out that majority of the companies in the sector have registered and complied to the AML and CFT regulations but still a percentage of companies have not yet registered. The extension of deadline will give them the opportunity to hurry up their registration, avoid violations and to protect their business and investments from money laundering risks through their compliance with the government regulations.

    “Extending the grace period without applying any violations before April 30 allows companies fulfill their obligations and initiate registration”, said Safia Al Safi, Director of the Anti-Money Laundering Department at the Ministry of Economy.

    The ministry had received numerous phone calls and enquiries too during the month of March which enabled them to come up with the decision of extension of deadline. The country is trying to manage and control money laundering and terrorism financing crimes that are on the rise. With the support and cooperation of the people it can be done smoothly and in a jiffy. Through strict compliance of the government regulations, the country will soon be able to attain their goal offering maximum support and security to the companies as well.

    VAT Applicable for Services Provided by Artists and Influencers in UAE

      Artists and influencers in UAE will not be exempted from VAT anymore. The FTA has come up with a bulletin that discusses about the applicability of VAT on artists and influencers.

      Artists and SMIs who are engaged in any sort of promotional or marketing activities in return for a remuneration, be it a mention in their posts, videos or blogs, or promoting a business in their social media, any sort of physical appearance or even providing access to the SMIs social media network are applicable for VAT.

      The bulletin has clearly stated that any reimbursement of cost incurred by the artist or SMI for providing the service, will also fall under the scope of VAT.

      The statement in the bulletin also read, “UAE-based artists and SMIs who make taxable supplies (which include zero-rated supplies) in the UAE are required to register for VAT provided the value of their taxable supplies and imports in the last 12 months exceeded, or is expected to exceed in the next 30 days, the mandatory registration threshold of Dhs375,000”.

      Artists of any kind who offer promotional services in their personal capacity are included in the list.

      The decision of imposing VAT on artists and SMIs will be beneficial to the country as it will bring in added income. The promotional activities for businesses by the artists and SMIs have become a trend, as it has a wider audience and reach. The economic state of the country will improve even more with the recent addition to VAT.

      Raghunath. T, Director

        As an attempt to control the financial crimes that are on the rise, the UAE Ministry of Economy has extended the period for the businesses to be in compliance with the Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Combating Financing of Terrorism (CFT) guidelines till March 31st for four selected categories of business.

        To stress upon the intent and seriousness that is expected from these Designated Non-Financial Businesses & Professions (DNFBPs), the Ministry of Economy has stipulated heavy penalties for businesses that fail to comply with the AML and CFT requirements by the due date.

        The fines will range from AED 50,000 to AED 1 million and can go up to AED 5 million as per the assessment of the Supreme Committee if engaged in money laundering, financing terrorism or any illegal organizations. A penalty of AED 1 million each will be charged on cases of fake bank accounts, failure to take action against clients listed on international or domestic sanctions list before establishing or continuing with the business.

        The business categories included are:

        • Brokers and Real Estate Agents
        • Dealers of precious metals and gemstones
        • Auditors
        • Corporate service providers

        The businesses must register with the Financial Intelligence Unit (go AML) and also enroll themselves on the Committee for Commodities Subject to Import and Export Control system (Automatic Reporting System for Sanctions List).

        Once the registration is complete, the businesses must adopt other measures related to AML and CFT in accordance with the provisions stated by the Decree-Law.

        Safiya Al Safi, Director of the Anti-Money Laundering Department, Ministry of Economy said, “All companies must establish internal policies, controls and procedures to avoid the risk of money laundering as per the regulations stated, which is made available on the official website of the Ministry of Economy.”

        AML and CFT measures are a necessity for an organization to ensure the smooth flow of businesses.

        Oman Introduces New Employment Security System

        CMA Muhammed Naseer

          Get Free Consultation




          Oman has recently published a new law regarding compulsory insurance for Omani nationals in situations where employment is terminated for purely business reasons. All Omani nationals working in both public sector and private sector employees are required to be insured under the new law.

          Oman’s Ministry of Justice and Legal Affairs has published Royal Decree 82/2020, which provides for the introduction of a new Employment Security System that is essentially an unemployment insurance system for Omani nationals whose jobs have been terminated, by providing a temporary source of income and financial aid as they seek new roles. Payments for the contribution are due by the end of the month by public sector employers and by the 15th of the following month by private sector employers.

          The requirement to pay an additional monthly contribution are effective from 1 January 2021. Companies needs to transfer their additional contribution along with the existing PASI contribution.

          After adding employment security system contribution, total monthly contribution is 20.5% of the employee’s Gross Salary, of which 12.5% (includes 1% for occupational injuries and disease and another 1% for newly introduced Employment Security System) is payable by the employer and 8% % (includes 1% for newly introduced Employment Security System) is payable by the employee. The employee Pension contribution is deducted from the monthly wages and the employer needs to pay this amount along with the employer contribution to the Pension Authority.

          Payroll Process in Oman

          The process of payroll is a little complicated and time-consuming; hence it is always recommended to outsource your company’s payroll function. Outsourcing payroll will ensure the assistance of a team of trained payroll professionals and it frees up the time of the organization, helping them focus on other projects that add value to their business.

          One should be extra vigilant while selecting their payroll provider, as payroll data is highly sensitive, and one should opt for a provider that can ensure high levels of data security.

          As a leading payroll outsourcing company in Oman, HLB HAMT can help solve your payroll complexities through customized strategies. We take care of our clients’ entire payroll cycle that includes preparation of payroll reports, processing salary payment with WPS compliance, accrual management including Gratuity, pension funds, an online portal for accessing payslips, and many more. Our leadership team spends the necessary hours on every project, ensuring our clients get refined consulting services to take your business forward.

Mr. Vimal especially is very good at presenting technical concepts in simple yet interesting ways that non-IT and business people alike would easily catch. We are very happy with the professionalism and quality of service they provide. They leave their clients nothing short of satisfied. Highly recommended.read more

            The UAE has announced major changes to the citizenship law. As per the new amendment, investors, professionals, special talents and their families can acquire the Emirati nationality and passport, provided certain conditions are met.  Dual citizenship is another attractive feature.

            Categories that come under the amendment include;

            • Investors
            • Doctors
            • Specialists
            • Inventors
            • Scientists
            • Talents
            • Intellectuals
            • Artists and their families

            Conditions that must be met in each category

            Investors: Must own a property in the country

            Doctors and specialists: Must have specialization in a unique scientific discipline or a scientific principle that is on high demand in the country. In addition to this, the applicant should have acknowledged scientific contributions, studies and research of scientific value and a minimum practical experience of 10 years. They must also have membership in a reputable organization in their field of specialization.

            Scientists: Must be an active researcher in a university or research centre or in the private sector and should have minimum 10 years of experience in the same field. The applicant should have made some contributions as well in the scientific field, such as winning a prestigious scientific award, or securing substantial funding for their research. A recommendation letter from recognized scientific institutions in the UAE is also a must to apply for the citizenship.

            Inventors: Inventors must have one or more patents approved by the UAE Ministry of Economy or any other reputable international body, along with a recommendation letter from the Economy Ministry.

            Intellectuals and artists: Must be exceptional in the culture and arts field and should have won one or more international awards.

            People qualified for the citizenship will be nominated via the Emirates’ rulers court, the courts of the crown princes, the executive council in an emirate or the cabinet.

            The move is a token of appreciation for the talents and competencies present in the country and it will also attract more intellectuals. This will in turn boost the development of the country.

            We are awaiting more details on the conditions that need to be met for each category.
