VAT Return: June Deadline is here, file now


VAT Return deadline


The deadline for submitting VAT Returns is approaching soon. The FTA has reminded all its VAT registrants about the  28th June deadline for the period ending on 31st May, 2018.


The report says that, FTA has started receiving tax returns from registered businesses through the e-Services portal of the authority’s official website. The Authority called on all registered businesses to settle their payable taxes within the said time period, i.e. 28th June, 2018 to avoid administrative penalties.


FTA is in constant communication with  businesses, since it is important to ensure that tax regulations are implemented efficiently without any adverse effect on business confidence.

The services on the FTA’s official website are designed with best international standards and the procedures for submitting tax returns are simple, said the Director General.


Make sure that all the data entered during the submission process are accurate and the amount paid is transferred to the correct GIBAN (International Bank Account Number) number; the taxable person is responsible to ensure that the transfer is made to the correct number, he added.


Tax payments can be easily made by visiting the FTA’s website: Procedures are very simple:

  • Select e-Services
  • By clicking on the “VAT” tab, access the ‘Tax Return Form’
  • Complete the form with necessary details
  • Click “Submit”

Due payments can be made through the “My Payments” tab.


The payments can be made either through UAEFTS or via e-Dirham cards (through the authority’s e-Services portal).
