In order to register for VAT in the UAE you should meet the following conditions:
A business must register for VAT if its taxable supplies and imports exceed AED 375,000 per annum.
It is optional for businesses whose supplies and imports exceed AED 187,500 per annum.
A business house pays the government, the tax that it collects from its customers. At the same time, it receives a refund from the government on tax that it has paid to its suppliers.
Foreign businesses may also recover the VAT they incur when visiting the UAE
Furthermore, a business may choose to register for VAT voluntarily where the total value of its taxable supplies and imports (or taxable expenses) is in excess of the voluntary registration threshold of AED 187,500.
VAT-registered businesses collect the amount on behalf of the government; consumers bear the VAT in the form of a 5 percent increase in the cost of taxable goods and services they purchase in the UAE.
UAE imposes VAT on tax-registered businesses at a rate of 5 percent on a taxable supply of goods or services at each step of the supply chain.
Tourists in the UAE also pay VAT at the point of sale.
Submission Of VAT Return:
At the end of each tax period, VAT registered businesses or the ‘taxable persons’ must submit a ‘VAT return’ to Federal Tax Authority (FTA).
A VAT return summarises the value of the supplies and purchases a taxable person has made during the tax period and shows the taxable person’s VAT liability.
