organizations in the UAE that have registered for VAT must make sure that it complies with all of the FTA’s VAT regulations. The FTA has the authority to audit businesses on a regular basis to look into their tax obligations and filings. In the event that a company is determined to have broken the law, severe fines may be imposed. But, by using seasoned VAT consultants like CDA in the UAE, the businesses may make sure they are in agreement with the VAT rules by doing VAT health checks.
What is meant by a VAT health check?
All UAE taxpayers are accountable for accurately and on time filing their VAT returns. They need to make sure that compliance is met and make sure that the VAT procedures are in order. The VAT health check is a practice wherein the VAT procedure and structure are independently reviewed and assessed to see if they are adequate and carried out properly. It is mostly carried out by a qualified independent VAT consultant who is well-versed in VAT regulations. A VAT health check can assist businesses in avoiding costly fines from agencies like the FTA.

Similar to how we see doctors for a personal health check-up to make sure we’re in good health and to identify any diseases early on, experienced VAT consultants may conduct a VAT health checkup for businesses in the UAE to offer information about compliance and accuracy of VAT procedures as well as help identify any errors. Although performing a VAT health check is optional, it can provide you confidence in the VAT operations of your company in the UAE.
