How to file VAT return?

Role of Accounting Services in Dubai

VAT Returns Filing has to be done through online portal of the Federal Tax Authority (FTA) https://eservices.tax.gov.ae/en-us/#/Logon. The form used for VAT return filing is called Form VAT 201. A taxable person is responsible to submit VAT return in the UAE in the prescribed format given by the FTA. Every taxable person is required to submit the VAT Return within 28 days from the end of each Tax period prescribed by the FTA. This must be in accordance with the provisions of the UAE VAT law.

Failure to file a tax return

The taxable person is also liable to remit the amount of tax due to the FTA within the time frame specified by the UAE VAT Law i.e. failure to file a tax return within the specified timeframe will make the violator liable for fines as per the provisions of Cabinet Resolution No. 40 of 2017 on Administrative Penalties for Violations of Tax Laws in the UAE.
