Land transportation is exempt from VAT, but Careem’s electronic marketplace service is not, so your ride with Careem will be taxed – but only on the portion of the fare that is attributable to our marketplace service.
This will translate into an average fare increase of 2.5%.
The final charge reflected on your receipt will be inclusive of VAT.
Please note that you will also receive a separate company tax invoice at the end of every month, with a summary of your trips taken, as part of our constant effort in serving you better.
Careem is committed to operating in accordance with the law in Egypt and in all the markets in which it operates, and under the Egyptian VAT law issued under Law No. 67 of 2016, VAT is applied on services that are not exempted under the law.
