  • govern your business
  • protect labour rights, consumer rights and intellectual property rights

The Economic Substance Regulations (ESR) is in line with UAE’s commitment to the international tax cooperation and transparency. The regulations require UAE’s onshore and free zone companies and other business forms that carry out any of the ‘Relevant Activities’ listed in the regulations’ framework to maintain an adequate ‘economic presence’ in the UAE relative to the activities they undertake ‘Economic Substance Test.’ Find more information about the ‘Economic Substance Regulations’ on the website of Ministry of Finance.

Federal Decree No. 20 of 2018 on Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism was issued to develop the legislative and legal structure of the nation to ensure compliance with international standards on anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism. The law aims to:

  • combat money-laundering practices
  • establish a legal framework that supports the authorities concerned with anti-money laundering and crimes related to money-laundering
  • counter the financing of terrorist operations and suspicious organisations.

 

The Decree-Law defines a perpetrator of a money-laundering offence as any person who is aware that the money was derived from a felony or misdemeanour, and intentionally commits one of the following acts:

  1. transferring or transporting proceeds of crime with intent to conceal or disguise its illicit origin
  2. concealing or disguising the true nature, origin, location, way of disposition, movement or rights related to any proceeds or the ownership thereof
  3. acquiring, possessing or using such proceeds
  4. assisting the perpetrator of the predicate offence to escape punishment.

 

The Law stipulates that money laundering is independent of the predicate crime and that the punishment of the person who has committed a predicate offence shall not protect him or her from being penalised for money laundering.

UAE Federal Law 20 of 2018 on Anti Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism (the “AML Law”) and Cabinet Decision 10 of 2019 issued under the AML Law require business licensing agencies in the UAE to identify the ultimate individual beneficial Owner(s) of businesses licensed by them.
