  Did you know? DIFC Will Services are now Tax-Exempt!    A DIFC Will encompassing Dubai assets (bank accounts, jewelry, works of art, cars, investment policies, shares of companies, real estates…) only, located or registered in Dubai, could be registered in the Dubai International Financial Center (DIFC), a Common Law Jurisdiction based on the UK Estates Act and Probate Rules excluding the Sharia law, Wills and Probate Registry (“WPR”) by Non-Muslim individuals over the age of 21 years UAE resident or not under full testamentary freedom (except some restrictions depending on the testator’s citizenship and/or residency) and covering guardianship matters related to minor children habitually resident in Dubai with the testator. A Will can now be registered at the DIFC Wills Service Centre (DIFC WSC) for a lower price and it was just announced that the DIFC Courts Wills Service Centre is no longer required to pay VAT for its services which means that all Will registration services shall be exempt from the 5% VAT charge that currently applies. Will services already rendered before this date shall still be charged the VAT fees and no refunds are available for VAT already paid prior to the effective date.
