Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need VAT training?
VAT is a new concept not just for the business people in the UAE but for everyone here. Ever since, UAE has been enjoying a VAT-free environment; hence, people do not have an idea on how to deal with it for them to comply to the new laws that have been passed and approved.
For this matter, VAT training is a must for every businessman and woman for them to fully understand and grasp the idea of VAT, its effects, and the important things to take note of.
Who will conduct the VAT training?
Our VAT training will be conducted by our company and will be taught by our highly qualified team member who will explain everything from the related laws of taxes in the UAE to the complexities that come with VAT and things to be done for a balance business that is VAT-compliant.
What other things should I do after the training?
It is advisable for businesses that do not have any accounting department to take care of their VAT affairs to outsource accountants that can handle the VAT side of their business, which we offer as well.
For those that do have an accounting department (which you have brought with you in the training), you can go on and apply all that you’ve learned. Lest you need more information or you think you would have further questions in the future, we are always willing to conduct a consultation with you.
What is the obligation of a business when it comes to VAT?
According to the UAE Tax Law, taxable entities are required to keep records for all supplies and imports of goods and services, tax invoices, tax credit notes, related documents, etc.
Businesses are also required to pass requested documents (in Arabic) by the government or Federal Tax Authority, submit tax returns, settle payments.
Why is VAT being considered by the UAE?
The UAE government has seen the opportunity to diversify the State’s income sources by not leaning too much on our oil and gas sector.
By implementing VAT, the facilities needed by the public will be met even more as it is expected that VAT will bring in big revenue for the country.
Will imported goods and services be subject to VAT?
- Goods and services purchased outside the country are subject to VAT.
- In the event that the recipient of the goods and services in the State is registered for VAT, a reverse charge mechanism will be used with VAT being due on the import.
- In case the recipient in the State is a non-registered person for VAT purposes, VAT would be paid on import of goods from a place outside the GCC. Such VAT will typically be required to be paid before the goods are released to the person.
How will VAT be applied on importation of goods?
The amount of the importation of goods that includes customs duty will be the value that VAT will be computed on. So the payment for the imported goods cannot be set off against VAT.
What are the penalties for non-compliance?
There is a long list of penalties in the Cabinet Decree Number 40 of 2017 for violations against Tax Procedures Law, Excise Tax Law, and VAT Law.
