Dubai Media Office on Monday shared a report by PWC which rated Dubai as the first globally in take-home salary/pay.

The take-home salary refers to the net salary taken home by an employee after deducting tax and/or social security payments.

Employees in the emirate take home 100% of their income according to the study which compared the salaries taken home by highly-paid resident employees in different cities across the world.

The survey was done based on the incomes of married individuals with no children.

UAE has no social security contribution levied from non-national employees in the UAE and no income tax.

However, for some foreign citizens, they may be liable to tax rules of their home country.

 On the other hand, for instance, non-resident Indians (NRI) in the UAE pay zero tax on salary earned in the UAE and also pay no tax in India due to their NRI status.
