VAT Return Filing

Once a business is registered for VAT in the UAE, it will be required to file VAT returns and make related VAT payments within 28 days from the end of the tax period.

The standard Tax Period shall be a period of three calendar months ending on the date that the FTA determines.

The FTA may, at its discretion, assign a different Tax Period other than the standard one, to a certain group of Taxable Persons.

A Tax Return must be received by the FTA no later than the 28th day following the end of the Tax Period concerned or by such other date as directed by the FTA. Where a payment is due to the FTA, it must be received by the FTA by the same deadline.

Filing VAT Returns For each Tax Period, the Taxable Person shall report details in relation to sales and other outputs as well as purchases and other inputs.
