VAT compliance will be mandatory throughout UAE. Once registered for VAT, you will be required to file periodic statutory declarations. As Companies in Dubai have never filed a tax return before, it is imperative that you partner with an Accounting firm that has expertise in this area.
Tax return filing will be required at certain intervals throughout the year, In particular, a VAT return will need to be filed (usually every month or quarter), which summarises all the taxable transactions that your business made in that specific period.
Compliance within the UAE will be paramount if you want to continue to trade within the region. Eventually you will be able to complete your VAT return online and also your tax return online, but for now you will need someone to submit it for you through the Government.
