What happens if I voluntarily disclose the errors in my tax return, tax assessment form, or refund application?

You will incur a fixed penalty of AED 3,000 for the first time or AED 5,000 for repeat violations, but the percentage-based penalty is adjusted based on when the disclosure is made:

  • 50% of the amount unpaid in error if you make the disclosure after either of the following: a) you have been notified of the tax audit and the Authority has started the audit process, or b) you have been asked for information relating to the tax audit.

  • 30% of the amount unpaid in error if you make a voluntary disclosure after being notified of the tax audit but before the start of the tax audit.

  • 5% of the amount unpaid in error if you make a voluntary disclosure before being notified of the tax audit by the tax authority.
