As of my last knowledge update in September 2021, the UAE implemented a Value Added Tax (VAT) system, and sellers on platforms like Dubizzle were generally required to charge VAT on taxable supplies. However, tax regulations can change over time, and it's important to stay updated on the current VAT laws and regulations in the UAE, as well as any specific rules for online sales.

In the UAE, the standard VAT rate was 5%, and certain supplies may be subject to a 0% rate or exempt from VAT. It's crucial to consider the nature of the goods or services you're selling, your annual turnover, and whether you meet the thresholds for VAT registration. Additionally, online platforms may have their own guidelines for VAT compliance.

To ensure you're following the most up-to-date VAT regulations in the UAE and complying with your tax obligations, I recommend consulting with a tax professional or contacting the UAE's Federal Tax Authority for the latest information and guidance regarding VAT on online sales.
