    What is Value Added Tax and who needs to register?

    Value Added Tax (VAT) is a consumption tax levied on use of goods and services which was introduced into the UAE on January 1st 2018. It is charged by individuals or businesses that are registered for VAT, but it is the end-consumer of the goods or services who bears the cost.

    Businesses that are based in the UAE with annual supplies of AED 375,000 or more are obligated to register for VAT. For businesses with annual supplies of at least AED 187,500 the registration for VAT is optional.

    Remember, at the End of each tax period, VAT registered businesses are obligated to submit a VAT return to the Federal Tax Authority!


    Deadlines and criteria for registering for VAT

    Every business in the UAE will be required to register for VAT once their annual supplies reach AED 375,000. You have to file a Tax Registration Application with the Authority within 30 days from the moment you were required to register for VAT.

    After registering for VAT every business is required to record, asset and report its VAT obligations in accordance to the law of the freezone.

    The general VAT rate in the UAE is 5% except for:

      How I've managed to start a business in the UK as a Russian citizen
      I have booked a consulting call with Alex in order to know how to start business in the UK. I've tried to find information in the Internet but the problem is that most of the articles were written by people who've never worked in this field. I believe that it's better to learn from those who has succeed, so I was looking for successful entrepreneurs...
      We requested Alessandro for advice on a new venture in the FINTECH area and his services are high level services. He and his team are always willing to collaborate in the study and solution of the problems that arise and providing innovative alternatives adjusted to the current reality. Reliable and highly recommended.

      Straight forward advice
      Lots of motivation and substantive knowledge! Excellent, straight forward advice from someone who clearly has the knowledge and experience. Alex makes it clear throughout the Wake Up Call that it is not easy and success will not happen overnight but shares the information and toolset to succeed.
