The economy of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is the 4th largest in the Middle East (after Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Iran). It has an open economy with a high per capita income and annual trade surplus. The UAE economy is mainly driven by natural resources like petroleum and natural gas. More specifically, more than 85% of the UAE’s economy was based on oil exports in 2009. The UAE government started to diversify its economy in recent years, successfully expanding into tourism and trade sectors, and such efforts have reduced the portion of GDP from the oil and gas sector to 30%. Finally, the country’s free trade zones offering full foreign ownership and zero taxes have attracted many foreign businesses to invest in the UAE.

Compliance risk

Risk of misclassification

United Arab Emirates’ worker classification labour and tax laws distinguish between contractors and full timers. If the individual meets the legal definition of an employee but is classified as a contractor, your company will face penalties.
