VAT Registration

VAT (Value Added Tax) Registration is necessary for both the firms and individual business owners in the UAE. Value Added Tax has been put into practice from 1st January 2018 in the UAE for those who have an annual turnover of more than AED 375,000/-.

VAT Registration is an easy-to-access process available in the online portal of the Federal Tax Authority. Standard Auditing with many professional Tax consultants can help you consider which option to go i.e, voluntary option, or mandatory option before VAT registration.

At Standard Auditing, we make sure to take into account almost all aspects of whether to register as a Standalone or a Tax group. The official website for VAT Registration is here
