Frequently Asked Questions on VAT

How can I pay my VAT returns?

There are three ways to pay your VAT returns: with an e-Dirham card or credit card, with a bank transfer, or with eDebit.

Pay via e-Dirham Card or Credit Card
The e-Dirham payment gateway supports payments through an e-Dirham card or a credit card (Visa and MasterCard only).

Charges for payment through e-Dirham card: AED 3 per transaction

Charges for payment through credit card: 2-3% of the total payment

Pay via Bank Transfer
Each taxable person is provided with a unique identification number called a GIBAN, which can be used to make a bank transfer. Just add your GIBAN as a beneficiary in online banking and transfer the VAT due.

Pay via eDebit
Payment through eDebit involves approvals, so it takes some time to settle the payment. This option works only for taxable persons who have access to retail or corporate online banking with one of the following banks:

  • Citibank (Retail)
  • Commercial Bank of Dubai (Corporate or Retail)
  • Dubai Islamic Bank (Retail)
  • Emirates NBD (Corporate or Retail)
  • First Abu Dhabi Bank (Corporate or Retail)
  • Noor Bank (Retail)
  • Standard Chartered (Corporate or Retail)

Charges for using eDebit through the e-Dirham payment gateway: AED 10 per transaction
