In the previous article, we discussed the administrative penalties (commonly referred to as VAT penalties) applicable under the Federal VAT Act. In addition to these administrative penalties, the Federal Tax Procedure Act also defines certain violations and their corresponding penalties. These will also have an impact on those who register under VAT in the UAE. Let us discuss these violations and their corresponding administrative penalties under UAE VAT.

5,000 if repeated

b. Percentage-based fines: If the registrant fails to voluntarily disclose after being notified of the tax audit and the audit process or after being required to provide information about the tax audit, 1.50% of the unpaid amount shall prevail. If the registrant voluntarily disclosed after receiving the tax audit notice and before the free trade agreement starts the tax audit, it will account for 2.30% of the unpaid amount. If the registrant voluntarily disclosed before the FTA notified the tax review, 3.5% of the unpaid amount

11. Taxpayers voluntarily disclose tax returns, and errors in tax assessment or tax refund applications are the same as above

12. If the taxable person fails to voluntarily disclose his tax return before notifying him that he will undergo a tax audit, the following two penalties will apply to errors in tax assessment or refund application:
