Fitness 360 Contract Not Renewed

Dear All,
After much consideration the EEC Committee has decided not to renew the annual contract at Fitness 360 Arabian Centre. This is due to a downturn in the EEC Membership numbers which impacts our annual budget and thus the the Club cannot afford to renew this contract.
All other memberships contracts will be renewed as and when their contracts expire.

EEC Update Concerning VAT

Dear EEC Members,

As you are all aware, the UAE government has introduced VAT in the UAE from 1st January 2018, and after a number of meetings with the Emirates VAT & Taxation Legal team they have stated that Emirates Engineers Club (EEC) will be affected and are required to register the EEC Club for a VAT number.

With this in mind, the EEC Club are required to pay VAT on our monthly contributions received from its members.

Unfortunately, this cost cannot be absorbed by the EEC Club and the monthly membership fee will need to be increased to the following with effect from April 2018;

Family Membership – from 140dhs to 150dhs/month (7%)
Single Membership – from 70dhs to 75dhs/month (7%)

We appreciate that the increase is slightly more than 5% but there has not been an increase in the monthly fee for approximately 5 years.

If the EEC Club is to maintain the facilities we currently have membership at, this increase is definitely required. Your continued support of the EEC Club is fully appreciated

The EEC Committee will shortly be sending out an online survey to get your feedback as well as asking questions on what you would like to see from the EEC Club.

For your feedback and comments, please send your emails to

Best Regards
EEC Committee.

Site Under Maintenance

Dear All,

Because of a major virus attack on the EEC website, we have had to delete the old EEC site. Therefore, we will have to upload all the content again, which we will continue to do as we can.

As most of the site was infected, we felt it prudent to “start afresh”, and thus we have also lost all the old posts.

Whilst we are in this transition phase, please bear with us.. The site might look different each time you visit!

Kind regards,
Emirates Engineering Club
