In order to determine whether the value of consumables has exceeded the mandatory registration threshold limit or voluntary registration threshold limit, the following factors need to be considered.

Value of taxable supply of goods and services: Taxable supply refers to the supply of all goods and services manufactured in the UAE, in which value-added tax is levied at a standard rate of 5%, including zero-rated supplies. This does not include notified spare parts that are exempt from VAT.

Value of offset supplies: offset supplies are notified supplies. Compared with the receiver or purchaser, the value-added tax on the supplies should be collected and paid by the supplier from the buyer. When reaching the turnover threshold for VAT registration, the value of these supplies needs to be considered.

Import: The value of imported taxable goods and services that are taxable by the importer.

Let us take an example to understand how to calculate the VAT turnover threshold

Existing business is acquired

If a person acquires an existing business, only the relevant portion of the value of the taxable supplies belonging to that person (taking over the business) should be considered. There is no need to consider all the consumables provided by the person who bought the business from it. The calculation of turnover for VAT registration will be similar to that discussed above.

Related party

A related party refers to two or more people who are not separated at the economic, financial or regulatory level. One of them can control the other party through the purchase of shares or voting rights. Under the above circumstances, the value of the taxable goods will be determined in detail in the implementation regulations of the UAE Value Added Tax Law which has not yet been provided.
