Facebook is now required to charge VAT on the sale of ads in the UAE

As of 15 December 2020, Facebook will update the VAT treatment of Facebook ad purchases by VAT-registered customers in the United Arab Emirates. Facebook will require businesses advertising for a business purpose to provide a valid VAT registration number to ensure that VAT is not added to the purchase of Facebook ads. If a valid VAT registration number has already been provided, no further action is required.

For businesses that provided an invalid VAT number prior to 15 December 2020, these invalid VAT numbers will be removed from Facebook’s systems and Facebook will add VAT at the applicable local VAT rate to the cost of Facebook ad purchases. Advertisers who have a valid VAT registration number and would like to update their information can add their valid VAT registration number in their Facebook account settings. In Facebook account settings, please review the “State” information that was provided and update if needed.

Facebook will verify advertiser VAT registration numbers on a regular basis. Advertisers who continue to provide an invalid VAT registration number will be blocked from entering subsequent numbers and Facebook will add VAT at the applicable local VAT rate to the cost of Facebook ad purchases.

When, while the lovely valley teems with vapor around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of the insects and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image, and the breath of that universal love which bears and sustains us, as it floats around us in an eternity of bliss; and then, my friend, when darkness overspreads my eyes, and heaven and earth seem to dwell in my soul and absorb its power, like the form of a beloved mistress, then I often think with longing, Oh, would I could describe these conceptions, could impress upon paper all that is living so full and warm within me, that it might be the mirror of my soul, as my soul is the mirror of the infinite God!

O my friend — but it is too much for my strength — I sink under the weight of the splendor of these visions! A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine.

I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.
