  • Share:

The Federal Tax Authority (FTA) has relaxed the timeline for filing the first value-added tax (VAT) returns, easing reporting and compliance pressure on companies, especially SMEs.

The first tax return filing for companies with more than Dh 150 million turnovers was one month. For others, it was quarterly. Now, firms can file their first tax returns after four or five months in June as per the new timelines appearing on the FTA’s dashboard after log-in by a member company. Such an extension in filing returns shall help firms to better comply.
