VAT Registration UAE

Value-added tax (VAT) is a tax levied on each value-added level of a product throughout the supply chain. It is collected from each point of sale of the manufacturer until it is sold to the final consumer. This is done by allowing adjustments to the taxes paid for purchases known as “input tax credits” or also known as “input value-added tax”, while the VAT on sales is called “input value-added tax”. Ultimately, all taxes are paid by consumers.

The UAE will impose a standard tax rate of 5% on the supply of goods and services. However, certain supplies, such as local passenger transportation, designated financial services, medical care, exports outside the Gulf Cooperation Council, etc., will be zero-rated or exempt from VAT in the UAE.

Who Should Register for VAT Registration UAE

Are all companies responsible for registration of VAT? No, only companies that exceed the prescribed annual total turnover threshold can be registered under the value-added tax. According to the registration threshold, the company will be authorized to registration of vat , or alternatively, the company can apply for registration or can apply for VAT exemption registration

On this basis, VAT Registration UAE can be divided into the following categories:

  1. Compulsory VAT Registration Dubai
  2. Voluntary VAT Registration UAE
  3. Exemption from VAT Registration UAE

Mandatory VAT Registration UAE

All companies that have a place of residence in the UAE state and have supplied more than AED 375,000 in the value of goods in the member states in the past 12 months are required to register for  VAT UAE . In addition, if companies expect that the total value of their supplies will exceed the mandatory VAT Registration of vat threshold of AED 375,000 within the next 30 days, they will also have to register under the UAE VAT Registraion online

Mandatory VAT Registration UAE

In the past 12 months, the resident value of the supplies exceeded AED 375,000. It is expected to exceed 30 days in the current fiscal year. Types of threshold conditions for business registration-The threshold limit for non-residents is not applicable. Regardless of the threshold, registration of vat  must be compulsory under UAE VAT Registration online of  VAT.

Voluntary VAT Registration UAE

All companies that have a place of residence in the UAE and do not require mandatory UAE VAT Registration can choose to apply for UAE VAT Registration online voluntarily. Only if the annual supply or taxable expenses are not less than this, can this be done higher than the threshold for voluntary vat registration? The voluntary UAE VAT Registration online threshold is 187,500 dirhams, accounting for 50% of the mandatory VAT Registration UAE threshold.

Voluntary VAT Registration UAE

In the past 12 months, the value of supplies/taxable expenses exceeded AED 187,500

It is expected to exceed 30 days in the current fiscal year

Here, VAT Registration UAE is not compulsory. For companies, deciding whether to register is optional. Including taxable fees as a criterion for determining eligibility for voluntary registration provides all start-ups with the opportunity to register for  VAT. This is because, as a start-up company, the turnover or value of the supply may decrease, but it is very likely that a large amount of taxable expenses will be incurred in the beginning of the business or the beginning of the business. As a result, using taxable fees as a criterion for voluntary VAT Registration UAE will enable all start-ups to register with zero turnover.

VAT exemption Registration

Companies whose supply value from member states is below the voluntary registration threshold of AED 187,500 are not allowed to register for VAT in UAE . In addition, companies that are only engaged in zero-rated supply can request VAT Registration exemption

This means that everyone should have any of the following business offices in the UAE:

 Place of establishment: The place where the company is legally established in the UAE according to its establishment decision, or where major management decisions are made and central management functions are performed.

Fixed place of business: Any fixed place of business other than the place of business in which the person conducts business regularly or permanently and has sufficient human and technical resources to enable the person to provide or obtain goods or services. This includes branches and is also considered a fixed institution.
