The VAT in the UAE was implemented on 01 January 2018 which made its mandatory for every taxable person to have and to maintain their books of accounts under the VAT Law for at least five years. It orders the individuals to have their groundwork for the VAT Registration and Accounting.

The preparation for the VAT Registration and Accounting needs time since it requires tons of documents to be sent. Part of this, all the records ought to be appropriately kept and documented by the organization for the investigation and checking done by the administration. To ensure the accuracy of the VAT Accounting, the organization must complete, sort out, and apply all the procedure and controls before the VAT regime.

The Federal Tax Authority can actually ask for additional documents such as, annual accounts details, general ledgers, purchase day books, invoices issued, invoices received, credit notes, debit notes, VAT ledgers, records of all supplies and imports, etc.

All the taxable businesses must apply for the TAX accounting and must not neglect completing all the necessary documents since there is a VAT penalty and fines for those who will not comply with this law. You would not be glad and happy to know how much it will cost in the event that you decline in complying to this law. A penalty of 10,000 will be imposed to an individual who will fail to keep required records, books, and documents. Another 50.000 will be taken away from your pocket if you do the same negligence in the second time around.
