Value-Added Tax or VAT is a tax on the consumption or use of goods and services raised at the point of sale. The VAT is a form of indirect tax and is applicable in more than 150 countries around the world. All countries have VAT (or similar regulation). While it feels similar to Sales Tax generally imposed on end-consumers, VAT is a more advanced tax system and overcomes many challenges that affect the general sales tax.
As each jurisdiction has its own rules on accounting and the timeframe for submitting tax returns, THE BUSINESS SETUP will contact you at the right time to ask you to provide us with the necessary documents to draw up the accounts.

Furthermore, an entity may choose to register for VAT voluntarily if their income is less than the mandatory registration limit but exceed the voluntary registration cap of AED 187,500.

This option to register voluntarily is available to enable start-up companies with a low turnover to register for VAT.
