UAE Corporate Tax: FTA Urges Registration by May 31 for Specific License Holders

The Federal Tax Authority (FTA) has issued a directive urging certain license holders subject to corporate tax to register by May 31, 2024. The directive applies to resident juridical persons with licenses issued in January and February, regardless of the issuance year.

Emphasizing the importance of adhering to this deadline, the FTA has highlighted the significance of aligning with Decision No.3 of 2024, effective since March 1, 2024. Non-compliance may lead to administrative penalties.

The FTA has specified deadlines for both resident and non-resident juridical and natural persons to apply for corporate tax registration. Failure to meet these deadlines may result in penalties.

Stakeholders are urged to consult the Corporate Tax Law and relevant guides available on the FTA website. To facilitate registration, the FTA provides EmaraTax, a digital platform accessible at all times. Businesses can complete registration in approximately 30 minutes using this platform, especially if they are already registered for VAT or excise tax. Upon approval, applicants will receive a Tax Registration Number (TRN) for corporate tax purposes.
