Federal Tax Authority launches first phase of ‘Tax Clinic’ in Ras al-Khaimah
The Federal Tax Authority (FTA) has officially launched phase one of its “Tax Clinic” initiative, which seeks to maintain direct and constant communication with taxable businesses.
For three months, the campaign will cover all seven emirates to raise tax awareness across the country, urging taxable businesses to register with the Authority and promoting compliance with Tax Return requirements and the timely payment of due taxes. Phase one will take place in Ras al-Khaimah over the course of three days – from 7:30 am to 2:30 pm – until August 14, 2018, at the headquarters of Ras al-Khaimah’s Department of Economic Development (RAK-DED) and Ras al-Khaimah Economic Zone (RAKEZ).
A press statement issued today explained that the “Tax Clinic” campaign will be organised as a collaboration between the Federal Tax Authority and the departments of economic development and municipalities in all emirates. Two teams of analysts and specialists from the FTA’s Registration, Tax Returns and Taxpayers Services will go on an extensive tour, which includes several meetings and an interactive seminar in each individual emirate, with taxable businesses that have not yet registered in the tax system or that have fallen behind on submitting their Tax Returns and settling their due taxes – particularly, small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
