Section 3 – REQUIRED FINANCIAL RECORDS
Business entities registered in the United Arab Emirates are mostly subject to corporate taxes. To promptly maintain corporate tax compliance in the UAE, businesses must make the upkeep of correct financial and other pertinent records a priority. The information contained in the company tax return should be fully explained in these documents. To maintain openness and compliance with tax laws, firms must report this information to the Federal Tax Authority (FTA). Even firms that are exempt from corporate tax in the UAE are required to keep good records, as the FTA depends on these documents to evaluate their exempt status. Businesses can ensure smooth tax compliance and avoid any potential penalties or legal difficulties by prioritizing record-keeping.
Before registering for corporate tax in the UAE, businesses must make sure they have all the necessary paperwork ready. Financial statements, trade licenses and permits, and certificates of company registration are some of the documents that fall under this category. To prevent any delays in the registration procedure, it is essential to have these documents ready and arranged. Businesses can proceed with online registration and tax payment once all required documents are in line. By streamlining the tax payment process through digital means, businesses can now pay their taxes conveniently and effectively.
RECORDS REQUIRED FOR CORPORATE TAX REGISTRATION
- Copies of a valid trade license.
- Photocopy of the owner’s/partners’ valid passport
- Valid Emirates ID of license holder/partners
- Memorandum of Association (or Power of Attorney)
- Contact details (email and mobile number).
- Contact details for the business, including full address and P.O.
- Annual Financial Audit Report.
CORPORATE TAX GROUP – REQUIREMENTS
Through the tax grouping option, a group of enterprises can aggregate their tax liabilities and file a single tax return in the UAE, although certain requirements must be completed. Since the organization only needs to file one tax return, the filing procedure is made simpler for them. This approach also offers advantages to foreign investors. To reduce the UAE Corporate Tax Liability, the foreign corporate tax paid on taxable revenue in the UAE may be taken into account. As a result, the UAE benefits from increased international investment and a more favourable economic climate.
The corporate tax system in the UAE is straightforward. Once a year, in accordance with their financial period, businesses must file their tax returns. There are neither provisions nor obligations for advance Corporate Tax Filing, in contrast to several other nations. A flawless and effective process is guaranteed by the Ministry of Finance’s insistence that the filing procedure be carried out electronically. In addition, firms are not required to pay the UAE Corporate Tax in advance. With this simplified strategy, businesses doing business in the UAE will have an easier time complying with regulations and will face less paperwork.
Businesses may find excess tax losses to be a useful tool since they can carry forward any losses and use them as an offset against future taxable income. But to receive this benefit, a few requirements must be satisfied. This provision applies to tax groups as well as to specific businesses, allowing tax losses from one company to be used to reduce the taxable income of another within the group. This tactic can assist firms in reducing their tax obligations and strengthening their overall financial condition. Companies can maximize their future profitability and improve their tax planning by handling tax losses well.
