Can I get a refund, if I’m not registered for excise tax?

There are a limited number of cases where businesses can get refunds if they are not registered for excise tax. Those are:

  • If excise tax has been paid by certain international governments, diplomatic missions and international organizations in the course of their official activities, where a reciprocal agreement is in place between the UAE and the entity’s home country.

  • If business owner who is registered for excise tax in another GCC country, has paid the excise tax in the UAE, and has exported the excise goods out of the UAE.

A refund request form will be available on the FTA website that can be used to request refunds.
