UAE enjoyed a long period of tax exemption, but the impact of the global market made it necessary to implement a tax system in 2018. VAT was one of the taxes that was levied on the sale of commodities. To help the domestic suppliers, this tax is also levied on imported goods and services. Due to the fact that VAT is levied on both goods and services across the supply chain, the UAE now requires VAT registration more than ever. Manufacturers and merchants must register for VAT in UAE in order to abide by the new tax law. While some providers are required to register, others choose to do so voluntarily.

VAT registration 

VAT refers to Value Added Tax. It has been considered as a mandated consumption tax on products and enterprises. At present, just about 160 countries have imposed this idea in their country law and the expanding pace of Value Added Tax (VAT) acknowledgment has brought about a higher number of VAT Consultancies the whole way across the globe.

VAT Deregistration in UAE

UAE VAT Article 22: Application for VAT De-registration

All businesses with an annual turnover of more than AED 375,000 are required to get themselves registered for VAT and submit the tax returns to the FTA (Federal Tax Authority). As long as the business is operating in the UAE, a valid VAT registration needs to be available with the business. However, there could be a need at times when the business is no longer operating in the UAE or not achieving the mandatory turnover limit over the year, in such cases, the businesses could apply for deregistration with the FTA.

If a business ceases to make or deal in the taxable supplies and if they are dealing in the taxable supplies, but are unable to have a turnover of AED 375,000 in the preceding 12 months must apply for the VAT deregistration within 20 business days from the occurrence of the event.

If a business whose taxable supplies were more than 187,500 had themselves registered voluntarily for VAT and 12 months have elapsed since the date of registration, then the business may apply for voluntary deregistration.
