Tally Solutions | Updated on: February 5, 2020

VAT has been implemented in the UAE and KSA from January 1st 2018, as mandated by the GCC.

If you are a business owner in the KSA, you have to file VAT on a monthly basis if your annual turnover is more than 40 million SAR. Rest of the businesses have to file VAT on a quarterly basis.

For business owners in the UAE, the government decides the frequency of VAT return filing during the time of registration. The standard tax period applicable to a taxable business shall be a period of three months. The authority may assign a person or a class of persons a shorter or longer tax period.

The importance of filing accurate VAT returns in GCC

Filing VAT is a mandatory statutory requirement for all registered businesses or taxable persons. It helps you to track your tax liabilities or refunds which you can claim as a business. More importantly, your VAT return is a verified and an acknowledged business data summary made to the government.

Each VAT transaction which has been entered as a sale, purchase or any other adjustment entry has to be consolidated and reported back to the government in the form of returns. It is thereby critical to ensure that the data is correct.
