Value Added Tax (VAT) is a tax that is levied on the sale of goods and services in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). VAT registration is mandatory for businesses in the UAE that meet certain criteria. If you are a business in the UAE and your taxable supplies and imports exceed AED 375,000 per annum, you are required to register for VAT. Businesses that do not meet this threshold can choose to register voluntarily.

  • To register for VAT in the UAE, you will need to submit an online application through the Federal Tax Authority (FTA) website. You will need to provide information about your business, such as your trade license, Emirates ID, and proof of address.
  • Once you have submitted your application, the FTA will review it and may request additional information if necessary. If your application is approved, you will receive a VAT registration certificate, which will include your VAT registration number.
  • As a registered business, you will need to charge VAT on your taxable supplies and collect it from your customers. You will also be able to claim back any VAT you have paid on your business expenses. It is important to note that failure to register for VAT or comply with VAT regulations can result in penalties and fines. Therefore, it is essential to ensure that your business is registered for VAT and is compliant with all VAT regulations in the UAE.
