The Benefits of a Dubai Investment in Real Estate
Superior Income from Rentals
People come from all over the globe to Dubai to work, study, and vacation there. Therefore, there is a great deal of interest in renting in the area. Investments in Dubai have historically yielded high returns (ROI).
Return on investment may be measured in a number of ways, but one of the most common is the yearly rental yield, which is often over 5% in Dubai. However, places like Dubai Marina, Downtown Dubai, and Jumeirah Village Circle (JVC) achieve a rental return of 8% or more.
Pay no Tax When You Invest
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has gained a reputation for its welcoming policies toward foreign investors. When you invest in Dubai, you won’t have to worry about paying taxes on your income or profits, or even on the money you make by renting out your property (VAT).
As a result, a more sizable portion of an investor’s wealth may be put into real estate purchases, increasing the potential for profit. An average luxury home in Dubai may be purchased for between Rs 2 and 6 crore (about $45 million and $90 million).
It’s interesting to note that although direct taxes are not levied on investments made in Dubai, you may still be responsible for paying municipal fees and private community costs.
Liberalization of the Golden Visa Process
The government of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has announced two major changes to the Golden Visa program. Foreign people may invest, work, study, and live in the emirates, as well as own businesses with the help of the Golden Visa program.
The revised regulations reduce the required investment to get a Golden Visa from AED 5 million to AED 2 million. The visa period has been doubled, from 5 to 10 years.
