In the case of payment of a settlement amount, the tax impact should be taken into account. For example, the parties may explicitly state that the amount of the statement is a VAT (VAT) statement. This is also an important reflection for parties established in the Gulf after the introduction of VAT in the United Arab Emirates and other Gulf countries. A “global transaction” is an operation in which claims or charges have been filed in multiple jurisdictions and is defined as “a legal agreement that responds to or compromises both civil claims and criminal charges against a company or other large company.”  The Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement between the attorneys general of 46 U.S. states and the four major U.S. tobacco companies in 1999 is an example of a global comparison.  Another example is the Global Analyst Research Settlements. In Israel, which is a common law court, transactions are almost always submitted to the court for two reasons: (a) Only by submitting the settlement to the court can the parties to the trial control whether the court orders one or more parties to pay the costs, and (b) the plaintiffs generally prefer the settlement to have the effect of a judgment. However, communication is not recognized in some legal systems (including the United Arab Emirates). Therefore, documents labelled “without prejudice”, such as.B. draft settlement agreements, may be submitted to the court or arbitration court and used subsequently in the absence of a settlement. .
