VAT Consultant in Abu Dhabi, UAE

There is a saying about taxes: “People who complain about taxes can be divided into two classes: men and women.” Need not read again – It means literally EVERYONE!

The statement seems true to many businesses and organizations we deal with on a regular basis. Maintaining the momentum with frequently changing legal requirements does become a challenge. We understand!

VAT implementation was more like a revolution in several countries in the world. 

The Governments across the Middle East region have introduced various initiatives to reduce the dependency on oil generated income and further stabilize the economy. As part of this stabilization strategy, Value-Added Tax (VAT) was introduced in UAE as one of the regulatory changes.

The Federal Tax Authority oversees managing and collecting federal taxes and related fines, distributing tax-generated revenues, and applying the tax-related procedures in force in the UAE.

As VAT consultants in UAE, we have undertaken to assist our clients in creating an effective strategy wherein they can maximize their tax recovery staying within the law and ensure that they comply with the regulations set by the Government.


VAT Consultancy Services

Our VAT Consultancy Services encompass VAT Registration, VAT advisory & compliance support, VAT return filing, VAT health check, VAT Training, Tourist Refund scheme, VAT Deregistration, and much more!

VAT Registration

VAT Registration in UAE is mandatory for all those businesses that meet the mandatory turnover threshold limit, i.e., AED 375,000/- per annum. This includes the sale of goods or services in the ordinary course of business by an entity. Voluntary registration can be done if the taxable supply exceeds AED 187,500/- per year..

We at MSATC are within your easy reach to get complete assistance with the registration requirements.  

VAT Return Filing

After registering with FTA, businesses are required to file periodic statutory declarations. VAT Returns – summarizing all the taxable transactions that the business has made in that specific period, must be filed as per the tax periods stipulated by the FTA for each entity registered with the FTA. Any errors in filing statutory returns not only attracts fines and penalties but may also lead to loss of reputation.

At MSATC, with the procedures and systems to manage tax compliance effectively in place. Our team of Tax experts reviews the tax computations prior to the filing of VAT returns and ensure that an entity’s tax obligations comply with the relevant laws and regulations, and there are no omissions or errors.

VAT Advisory & Compliance Support

“Chris Rock, the American comedian, actor, writer, producer, and director – made a statement that goes – “You don’t pay taxes–they take taxes”.

And we, MSians say, “Let them take taxes, but be a prudent payer”.

At MSATC, our technical experts apply their deep insights gained from managing VAT in various jurisdictions to ensure that our clients remain ahead of requirements within the UAE. 

The FTA carries out inspections or tax audits at varying intervals. A well-timed VAT Health-check can ensure that there are no compliance gaps and therefore avoid penalties of tax, interest, and fines.

VAT Training

Our VAT training provides a comprehensive understanding of the VAT system, covering the fundamental principles of VAT, regulation and administration and guidance on the interpretation and consistent application of the VAT legislation within UAE. Our training sessions are designed to equip you and your workforce with the knowledge, skill and confidence to work with VAT in UAE.

Tourist Refund Schemes 

The FTA has introduced VAT Free shopping for Tourists visiting UAE. Certain VAT tax invoices issued to tourists for the purchase of goods by approved Retailers will be eligible for the refund. 

Recovery of payment will be done through a fully integrated electronic system which connects retailers registered in the ‘Tax Refund for Tourists Scheme‘ with all ports of entry and exit from the UAE.

Tax De-registration

In the event a tax registrant applied for Voluntary registration and after 12 months if their turnover did not exceed AED 187,500, or if the business stops making taxable supplies then they must apply for VAT Deregistration. This process is a part of VAT Online Services. The Registrant must apply to the Authority for deregistration in accordance with the cases mentioned above, within (20) business days of the occurrence of any of them. If the registered person does not deregister within the prescribed period as per the law, it will attract penalty from the Authority.
