Why is Corporate Tax Registration necessary in the UAE?

The registration is mandatory for both profit-making and loss-incurred enterprises, and businesses are required to obtain a Tax Registration Number. The standard statutory tax rate is 9% on taxable income above AED 375,000, while taxable income up to AED 375,000 is charged at 0%.

Timeline For Registration

The registration process began in early 2023, and businesses must register for Corporate Tax within a specific timeline. The registration application must be submitted to the Federal Tax Authority, and taxable businesses must file a tax return to the FTA no later than nine months after the end of the financial year. The UAE’s corporate tax law is designed to meet international tax standards and foster economic growth and stability.
