Do all businesses need to register under VAT ?

  • Overview

No, all businesses need not register for VAT.


Only those businesses with annual sales of taxable supplies, or where future sales in next 30 days, exceeds the prescribed threshold of USD 100,000 (AED 375,000), are mandatorily required to be registered for VAT. However, those below the prescribed threshold may apply to be voluntarily registered if their turnover ranges between USD 50,000 and USD 100,000 or their annual taxable expenditure exceeds USD 50,000.


Subject to certain eligibility criteria several individual businesses may be eligible for a Tax Group. A Tax Group is then treated as a single registration for VAT purposes and can bring some administrative and cash flow savings.
