New sugar & e-cigarette tax to hit UAE

According to reports, the UAE Federal Tax Authority (FTA) announced that a new tax on e-smoking devices and sugary beverages would come into play from December 1 this year. 

All producers, importers, stockpilers and establishments selling e-smoking devices (including tools and liquids) and sweetened drinks are advised to register online in the FTA’s system to avoid penalties.

With sugar and smoking being public health enemy number one, these taxes are only going to push consumers into making better choices when it comes to their health.
