Types of VAT Registration

There are two types of VAT registration in the UAE

1. Mandatory VAT Registration:

Mandatory registration is required for businesses whose taxable supplies and imports exceed AED 375,000 per year. This threshold applies to both resident and non-resident businesses in the UAE. If a business fails to register for VAT, it may face penalties and fines.

2. Voluntary VAT Registration:

Voluntary registration is an option for businesses whose taxable supplies and imports are below the mandatory registration threshold, but still wish to register for VAT voluntarily. Voluntary registration may be beneficial for businesses that deal with zero-rated supplies or that wish to reclaim VAT on their expenses.

It is important for businesses to ensure that all the required documents are accurate and up-to-date before submitting them for VAT registration. Failure to provide accurate information or documents may lead to delays in the registration process or even fines and penalties.

Importance and Implementation of VAT in the UAE:

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) implemented VAT in January 2018, making it mandatory for businesses operating in the country to register for VAT. 

This was a significant move for the UAE, as it marked a shift from its traditional tax-free economy to a tax-based system.

VAT registration services in Dubai assist businesses in complying with the VAT laws and regulations

VAT Penalties in the UAE

Do you know what happens when you don’t register for VAT in the UAE? Or if your company is late to register, you might have to pay a fine of AED 10,000. If you don’t pay taxes on time, there are more penalties:

● The day after the due date, there's a 2% penalty on the unpaid tax.

● Starting from the next month, there's a 4% penalty on any remaining unpaid tax each month.

● If payment is still delayed, there could be a maximum penalty of 300% each month after the deadline.

Factors You Need to Consider While Supplying Data for VAT Registration Purposes

Have a look at a few significant factors that might prove helpful before registering for VAT in the UAE:

● When your company registers for VAT as a stand-alone entity, you can submit data about one of its bank accounts in the United Arab Emirates.

● The entity should always submit necessary information such as the bank’s name, branch’s name, account title, and so on.

● If two or more entities seek to register for VAT as a group, then the data of the two entities’ single bank accounts would be served.
