VAT Training in UAE

After Value Added Tax implementation in the UAE in 2018, VAT became part and parcel of businesses trading taxable supplies in the UAE. Yes, not every business has to pay VAT. The 5% VAT is applicable to those companies only that are dealing in taxable goods and imports (exceeding AED 350,000 per year). Your business might be far from the VAT threshold at the moment but you never know when it will cross it and make you eligible for registering on the VAT system. There is no harm in being prepared for the complex VAT system beforehand. If you think you have working knowledge of VAT registration, VAT accounting, VAT implementation, and VAT return filing and you don’t need VAT training then allow us to enlighten you that there is so much more to learn about VAT in addition to these major components. Our training programs are thoughtfully structured to make you finance professionals aware of the impact of VAT implementation on various aspects of your company due to its business model.

  • VAT concepts and its applicable rules in UAE.
  • How to create a VAT account, add information on a regular basis and manage it for filling.

What does Tax Grouping or VAT Grouping mean? How does VAT Grouping benefit the participating companies?2021-12-30T06:35:10+04:00

Tax or VAT Grouping indicates grouping of two or more companies or limited liability partnerships as a single taxable entity for VAT purposes in accordance with the provisions of Federal Decree-Law Number 8 of 2017. Entities registered with the authority as a VAT are treated as a single company, which is still under the terms and conditions stated in the law. It is mandatory to fulfil certain conditions to abide by Federal Decree-Law Number 8 of 2017. If you are in a dilemma whether to merge or not for VAT benefits, seeking legal advice and support from a tax consultant is a wise move.

VAT groups are formed to enjoy benefits such as only one VAT return per quarter with reduced administrative work, VAT-free inter-company transactions, simplified accounting & record-keeping process, low-risk challenge of transfer pricing, intra-group charges-related positives, lower chances of incurring penalties in regards to intra-group charges, easier system configuration and implementation, relatively cheaper consultancy or compliance cost.
