ABU DHABI 27 December 2018: Industrial inputs imported to Abu Dhabi will be exempted from customs duties effective January 15th, 2019.

Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development (Added) and the General Administration of Customs in Abu Dhabi announced the tax waiver at a media briefing today as part of a stimulus provided by Added to the industry sector in the emirate. The exempted imports include raw material, machinery, equipment and spare parts.

Ali Al Humami, Director of the Industrial Organisation Department at the Added Industrial Development Bureau, and a number of officials from the General Administration of Abu Dhabi Customs announced the development, said Wam.
