Dubai will go VAT-free for one week starting August 13 as it launched special offers as part of Dubai Summer Surprises.
Several retailers based in the country have already vowed to take part in the celebration including leading car dealerships.
"Especially in high-value purchases such as a car, removing the VAR element of 5 percent could be decisive. Rather than saying a '5 percent discount', saying all deals during DSS are VAT-free carries more significance. It removes a mental block many buyers may have especially in deciding between," a general manager at a local dealer told Gulf News.
The campaign '24/7 VAT Free Week' will run from August 7 until August 13 and is also available on retailers' online portals too.
