Latest news from the UAE Federal Tax Authority (FTA):
The United Arab Emirates Federal Tax Authority (FTA) has issued a latest update and has informed in a recent circular that the option to log into the FTA website using e-mail address is going to be disabled in near future. Moving forward, users will be able to access the FTA site exclusively by using the national digital identity solution UAE PASS. The decision will not affect the login mechanism for the EmaraTax digital tax services platform.
It is reiterated that, all the previously saved preferences on the FTA website will remain intact when a user logs in using UAE PASS, as the system will ask the user if a user has a “registered email” account in order to sync user data.
Further in this regard, the UAE Ministry of Finance released an update on 2nd August 2023 on its website stating “the enablement of the UAE Pass digital identity for all its services across systems, in line with the UAE’s efforts to enhance digital quality of life. This step contributes to enhancing the digitalization journey and eliminating paper transactions. The UAE Pass is the first national digital identity solution for nationals, residents, and visitors, enabling users to identify themselves to local and federal governments’ services and other service providers.”
“The Ministry of Finance replaced the traditional login feature on its services page, and exclusively adopted the UAE Pass login mechanism, starting from August 2023. Hence, the Ministry encourages its customers to register with the digital identity to continue benefiting from its digital services.”
