VAT Registration in UAE

Online VAT Registration in UAE is now open!

As we are well aware that in the UAE, VAT will be implemented from 1st January 2018.

As per the latest information available from the Federal Tax Authority, VAT registration is now open. We remind you to be prepared for VAT registration in time to avoid any legal penalty.

  • If your turnover for the last 1 year is more than AED 150 Million, you have to register on or before 31st October 2017
  • If your turnover for the last 1 year is between AED 10 Million & AED 150 Million, you have to register on or before 30th  November  2017
  • If your turnover for the last 1 year is between AED 375,000/ - & AED 10 Million, you have to register on or before 04th December   2017

The Federal Tax Authority is keen to give the business sectors sufficient time to adapt their operating systems to the requirements of the VAT system," Khalid Al Bustani, Director-General of FTA, said.

"The registration portal is available to all businesses around the clock to assure the ease and usefulness of the registration procedures to all businesses from all sectors through the website, which has been specially designed to meet international standards and to provide guidance to registrars on the completion of their applications."

The FTA has urged all businesses to learn and understand the implications of the VAT system and to align their work with the reporting and compliance requirements by the government. Businesses are also asked to ensure that they meet the conditions that allow them to uphold their obligations, which might call for making certain changes.

Once the Online VAT Registration is done, a tax identification number will be allocated, the authority will issue a TRN. In the application, the company's name as well as the name of the manager should be filled in Arabic. The applicant should fill the name of the bank, branch and the IBAN number of the UAE bank in which it operates.

  • Hi,
    We don’t have a Bank Account associated with our firm, so how should i give financial statement and bank details. Please help me.

    • Bank account is a MUST. without bank account, you cannot register your company under Federal Tax Authority (FTA). you need to open your company’s bank account as soon as possible.
      Thanks

      • Hi SAB, same email I received from the FTA. but in my case, we have already TRN and the status of our Tax group registration is Approved. But, for the VAT status is Suspended and it’s De-Register. What should I do?

  • Hi SAB,
    We are operating in Abu Dhabi as a Branch of Egypt based Company with Branch Trade license. We are new in UAE and are Real Estate Developers. Since we are new and there is no revenue for us (finalising our agreements with consultants and contractors), should we register for VAT ? We do not have audited financials nor any Income. Our expense now is only salaries and office utilities etc.. Please clarify if we need to be registered for VAT ? If so, please advise what will be your charges for VAT registration.

    Thanks and regards

    • If your annual turnover is more than AED 375,000 then you need to register mandatorily.
      If your annual turnover is less than AED 375,000 then the registration will be voluntarily.

  • Hi SAB,

    we are newly opened company in Ras al Khaimah in Feb-2017. we have less turnover than 187,500 at the moment and even bank account is also recently opened.
    Does we need to make VAT registration? We applied for TRN number but it is rejected. Can you please help us to come out from this figure??

    • You do not have to register as you are new company and your turnover is less than the threshold amount. Apply for the VAT registration when you will exceed the threshold amount. Thanks let us know if you need any kind of financial assistance.
