Introduction Corporate Tax in UAE

The United Arab Emirates (UAE), acclaimed for its business-friendly environment, has historically been distinguished by its appealing tax policies, notably the absence of a corporate tax. Yet, in a notable evolution, the UAE has recently revised its tax regime, introducing corporate income tax. This pivotal change in the nation’s fiscal strategies signifies its intent to broaden its revenue streams and conform to international tax norms.

For businesses like RNI Consulting operating in the UAE, this introduces a new aspect of financial management, particularly concerning the need to file taxes for business. Understanding and navigating the nuances of corporate tax return filing is now imperative. Entities must be adept in procedures to file company tax return, ensuring compliance with the updated tax regulations. This alignment with global standards in taxation represents a significant shift for the UAE, impacting corporate entities and their tax strategies.

The absence of corporate tax, along with various other incentives, played a crucial role in attracting foreign investment and fostering economic growth in the region. However, in line with global efforts to combat tax avoidance and to create a more sustainable and diverse economy, the UAE decided to introduce corporate taxation.

On 9 December 2022, UAE Ministry of Finance (MoF) issued new Decree-Law No. 47 of 2022, this new legislation, known as the Federal Corporate Tax (CT), introduces a comprehensive framework for corporate taxation in the UAE.

Effective from 1 June 2023, the corporate tax is applicable to all financial years commencing on or after that date. It encompasses all Emirates of the UAE and applies to all business and commercial activities conducted within the country. This means that companies operating in the UAE will now have obligations and responsibilities towards fulfilling their corporate tax requirements.

It’s important to note that the UAE CT is specifically aimed at business and commercial income, and does not apply to employment income or other non-business income earned by individuals in their personal capacity. This ensures that taxation is focused on corporate profits rather than personal earnings.

It is critical for companies doing business in the UAE to become familiar with the new Federal Corporate Tax and ensure compliance with its rules.

Corporate Tax Registration Services

At RNI Consulting, we are dedicated to providing professional Corporate Tax Registration services to assist businesses in complying with the Federal Decree Law No. 47 of 2022 titled “Taxation of Corporations and Businesses,” also known as the Corporate Tax Decree Law, issued by the Ministry of Finance in the UAE.

Under Article 51 of the Corporate Tax Decree Law, it is mandatory for every Taxable Person to register for Corporate Tax within the prescribed timelines and obtain a Tax Registration Number from the Federal Tax Authority (FTA), unless exempted by the Minister under specific circumstances.

To facilitate this process, we utilize the FTA’s digital services platform, EmaraTax, for Corporate Tax Registration. While currently, the registration process is primarily based on invitation-only from the FTA, it is anticipated that in the future, it will be open for all businesses.

Our primary objective is to make the Corporate Tax Registration process hassle-free for our clients. Our team of experienced corporate tax consultants assist businesses by guiding them through the requirements, helping to gather and organize the necessary documents, completing the online registration process, and ensuring compliance with the Corporate Tax Decree Law in a seamless manner.
