According to the UAE’s VAT, all companies that have a place of residence in the UAE and have valued more than AED 375,000 in GCC member states in the past 12 months must be compulsory to use UAE VAT registration. In addition, companies that do not have a place of residence in the UAE, regardless of their turnover, must be mandatory to register for VAT.

For registered companies dealing with other registered companies, it is very important to issue valid documents certifying that they have been supplied.
