VAT Deregistration In UAE

VAT Deregistration is an important process for companies and individuals in the UAE who wish to cancel their VAT registration and suspend their Tax Registration Number (TRN). The Federal Tax Authority (FTA) manages the online procedure for VAT deregistration, our VAT deregistration services can help.

It is crucial to note that only businesses and individuals registered under the FTA can initiate the process of VAT deregistration. Failure to comply with the timely deregistration requirements can result in a penalty from the authority.

There are specific circumstances under which a business or individual must apply for VAT deregistration in the UAE:

  • If the entity or individual ceases to make taxable supplies and does not anticipate any taxable supplies within the upcoming 12-month period, they are obligated to apply for VAT deregistration.
  • If the entity or individual is still engaged in making taxable supplies, but the value of those supplies in the preceding 12 calendar months falls below the Voluntary Registration Threshold (AED 187,500), VAT deregistration must be pursued.
  • In cases where the entity or individual is still involved in taxable supplies, but the value of those supplies in the previous 12 months is below the Mandatory Registration Threshold (AED 375,000) and 12 months have passed since the date of voluntary registration, VAT deregistration can be sought.
  • It is important to note that individuals who have voluntarily registered for VAT cannot apply for deregistration within 12 months from the date of registration. Non-compliance with this requirement incurs a late VAT deregistration penalty from the authority.

The Importance of VAT Returns Filing in the UAE:

VAT return filing holds significant importance for registered firms in the UAE. It serves as the official tax statement submitted to the Federal Tax Authority before the due date. Filing VAT returns regularly not only confirms your business’s operations but also offers legal certainty and benefits during the tax payment process. It helps prevent revenue loss and ensures assent with tax laws.

Penalties for Failure to Submit and Pay VAT Returns in the UAE:

Non-compliance with VAT return submission and payment deadlines can result in penalties. These penalties include a first-time delay penalty of AED 1000, a repetitive noncompliance penalty of AED 2000 within 24 months, and an immediate 2% penalty on the next day after the payment deadline for any unpaid tax. The tax authorities impose a monthly penalty of 4% until the tax is paid. Outstanding amounts beyond one calendar month are subject to a penalty of up to 300 percent.

VAT201 – VAT Return:

Taxpayers in the UAE perform VAT return filing online through the FTA’s website. Presently, offline filing is not permitted. Qualified businesses utilize the VAT 201 form for filing returns. After entering the FTA site, VAT registrants must verify the VAT 201 form. Certified tax agents in Dubai can also file tax returns on behalf of taxable individuals, ensuring compliance with the VAT laws.

VAT Refund Dubai

If your input VAT exceeds the output VAT during the VAT return submission, you may be eligible to request an FTA VAT refund. Input VAT refers to the tax paid on purchases of goods and services by a business or taxable person in the UAE. A business or taxable person collects output VAT as the tax on sales made. If your business is paying more tax than it is collecting from clients, you have the opportunity to claim an FTA VAT refund in the UAE.

VAT Refund in the UAE:

When it comes to handling excess input VAT, commonly referred to as a VAT refund, taxpayers have two options:

  • Requesting a VAT Refund: If you choose this option, you can apply for a refund of the excess input VAT amount. Our team can assist you in navigating the process and ensuring a smooth and successful VAT refund application.
  • Carrying Forward Excess Recoverable Tax: If you decide not to request an immediate refund, you can carry forward the excess recoverable tax to subsequent tax periods. You can then use this amount to offset against payable tax and/or fines. Additionally, you can apply for a refund at any point in the future if desired.
