VAT Compliance Services Dubai

‘Let your VAT contribute to the country while we contribute to you!’

VAT is a transaction-based indirect tax which is levied at each step of the supply chain. End consumers generally bear the VAT cost while registered businesses collect and account for the tax, in a way acting as a tax collector on behalf of the Federal Tax Authority.

VAT was introduced in the UAE on 1st January 2018 by the Federal Tax Authority.

To fully comply with the UAE VAT legislation, businesses may need to make some changes to their core operations, financial management and book-keeping, technology, and perhaps even their human resources.

VAT is paid by the business entity to the government after offsetting the tax amount it has paid to its suppliers and the tax amount it collected from its customers. We offer various services under VAT compliance and below is the list:

VAT Refund Services Dubai

VAT refund is requested by organizations from FTA when the input tax (charged on amount paid to suppliers on purchases) in VAT return filing is greater than the output tax (charged on the amount of sales). FTA carries out an initial assessment, document verification, and scrutinizes the claim. Upon successful validation, the applicant is entitled to receive the refund of excess tax within 20 days of application.

Though the normal refund period of VAT is 20 days, complex applications can take a while longer. In such instance, the taxpayer is informed through e-mail about the status whether FTA accepts or rejects the applications.

If the applicant doesn’t want to get the refund at the current tax period, he can carry forward the recoverable to subsequent periods and use it in payable tax or penalties or apply for a refund later.

VAT Filing Services Dubai FAQs

The Federal Tax Authority’s web portal (EMARA Tax) facilitates online VAT registration in the UAE for obtaining the Tax Registration Number (TRN). BCL Globiz provides services for both VAT registration services and Tax Group registration services. A company is required to seek VAT registration when its taxable supplies or imports exceed the mandatory registration threshold of AED 375,000. Additionally, a business has the option to register for VAT voluntarily if the combined value of its taxable supplies, imports, or taxable expenses exceeds the voluntary registration threshold of AED 187,500

VAT, as a general consumption tax, is applied at 5% to all transactions of goods and services unless specifically exempt in Article 46 of the Federal Decree-Law No. (8) of 2017 on Value Added Tax or subject to a rate of 0% as per Article 45 of the Federal Decree-Law.

Every seller registered for VAT is required to issue a tax invoice when selling taxable goods or services. There are two types of tax invoice under the VAT decree, one is Simplified tax invoice and the other is full tax invoice. A simplified tax invoice can be raised by a seller if the recipient of services/goods is unregistered (B2C) or the consideration for the supply doesn’t exceed AED 10,000. A detailed invoice needs to have all the information as menitoned in the Article 59 of the Executive regulation.

The standard tax periods for VAT return are as follows:

1) Quarterly for businesses with an annual turnover below AED 150 million.
2) Monthly for businesses with an annual turnover of AED 150 million or more.
3) The FTA may, at its discretion, allocate a different tax period for a certain type of business

Common challenges faced during the VAT registration process in Dubai include incomplete documentation, difficulties in navigating the online application system, and understanding specific requirements. The FTA is very specific and if the required details are not shared then it can be rejected after issuing queries. BCL Globiz can assist in overcoming these challenges by providing professional guidance, ensuring accurate documentation, and facilitating a smooth VAT registration process.
