Federal Tax Authority launches Tax Agents Classification Initiative
Dubai May 27, 2023:
The Federal Tax Authority (FTA) has launched the Tax Agents Classification initiative to facilitate tax compliance for taxpayers, providing a clear, and accurate online procedure for them to select a specialised Tax Agent suitable to the sector their taxable economic activity falls under, out of a list of 10 diverse sectors that categorise the cumulative real-life experiences of accredited Tax Agents registered with the Authority.
The Authority explained that the initiative aims to increase customer satisfaction among taxpayers regarding the services of Tax Agents, noting that the new Tax Agent Classification service can be availed by accessing the Authorised Tax Agents Register through the FTA website, then clicking on the ‘Filter Agents’ option to classify them according to specialisation or sector, and choose one of the agents listed in the required sector.
The FTA went on to reveal that the number of approved Tax Agents participating in the new initiative amounted to 319, accounting for more than 70% of the total of 454 agents registered with the Authority.
