VAT Registration Service in UAE

VAT Registration in UAE

VAT Registration in the UAE refers to the process of registering with the Federal Tax Authority (FTA).

If they meet specific requirements, any natural or legal person in the UAE can register for VAT or Excise Tax Registration. The only people who can collect and remit tax in the UAE are those who have a valid TRN, or Tax Registration Number, issued by the FTA.

How to Register for VAT in UAE?

The Federal Tax Authority (FTA) has ensured that the procedure of VAT registration is as simple as possible thanks to its ongoing preparation and commitment. The entire VAT registration process is completed online.

Anyone who wants to register for VAT must first create an e-services account in the FTA portal using their e-mail address. Various documents must be supplied for FTA verification during the registration process, some of which are included below for your convenience:

Who should register for Excise/VAT in the UAE?

There are two types of VAT registrations in the UAE, according to UAE VAT law. Mandatory VAT Registration and Voluntary VAT Registration are the two types of VAT registration.

A. VAT Registration is Required:

  • Any natural or legal person who has made supplies or sales totaling more than AED 375,000 in the previous 12 months must register for VAT in the UAE

  • Any person who does not have a permanent residence in the UAE (non-resident) is required to register for VAT in the UAE if he makes any supply in the UAE, regardless of his turnover. Only if no one else is liable for paying VAT on his behalf against such deliveries is this necessary VAT registration applicable to such nonresidents

  • In addition, any individual who reasonably expects that his supplies/sales will surpass AED 375,000 in the next 30 days must apply for VAT registration in the UAE

B. Registration for VAT on a voluntary basis:

  • If a person's supplies/sales for the previous 12 months totaled more than AED 187,500 (but less than AED 375,000), he or she can register for VAT in the UAE under the voluntary option

  • If a person reasonably estimates that his supplies/sales will exceed AED 187,500 (but not AED 375,000) in the next 30-days, he or she may voluntarily register for VAT

  • If a person's taxable expenses in the previous 12 months exceeded AED 187,500, he or she can register for VAT in the UAE on a voluntary basis

  • A person who estimates, on reasonable grounds, that his tax-exempt expenses would exceed AED 187,500 in the next 30 days can also use the Voluntary VAT registration method to register for VAT

Tax Group Concept

Anyone doing business in the UAE is not permitted to hold more than one VAT Registration number, according to UAE VAT legislation. Anyone with economic, financial, or regulatory interests in several organisations can combine them into one tax group.

The UAE VAT Laws are easier to comply with when enterprises are grouped together under one tax group. For the purposes of UAE VAT, the tax group will be regarded as a single entity. Any transactions among the tax group’s entities will be exempt from UAE VAT.
