When and how should VAT returns be filed?
UAE taxpayers should file VAT returns with the Federal Tax Authority (FTA) on a quarterly basis. Returns must be filed according to the procedures specified in the VAT legislation, within 28 days from the end of the tax period. Taxpayers can file their returns online using e-services.
For instance, if Ali has VAT returns for the October to December 2017 quarter, he has to file them before 28th of January, 2018.
