Why is the computation of VAT important for businesses?
Value Added Tax (VAT) is a consumption tax levied on goods and services (5% at the point of sale). Federal Decree-Law No. 8 of 2017 introduced VAT in UAE. VAT Registration in UAE came into effect on January 1, 2018, and it has changed the taxation procedure for businesses. The law and supporting regulations mention the various products and services and the applicable VAT rates. The VAT rates in UAE may differ; details are as below:
- Between 0% to 5%
- Some products/services are VAT exempt
- Few products do not fall within VAT’s scope
Businesses must accurately calculate their goods and services to determine their yearly VAT liability. If businesses do not adhere to the VAT Law’s provisions, FTA will penalize them for violation. Therefore, businesses need to have proper documents for VAT calculations, including business transaction details and supporting evidence.
You can further break down VAT into two categories
- VAT Charged – The VAT amount accumulated through sales of goods and services to customers.
- VAT payable – VAT paid to your suppliers & clients.
If the VAT paid exceeds the VAT charged, you can claim the rest from the FTA. On the other hand, if the VAT.
The difference between the two is the VAT amount you must either claim from the FTA (if VAT paid is more than VAT charged) or pay the FTA (if VAT charged is more than VAT paid). Therefore, accurate and timely VAT computation is critical for FTA compliance.
How to Calculate VAT in UAE
VAT on any good or service is calculated as input tax reduction from output tax. In this case, input tax is the tax you pay to the supplier or vendor for purchasing raw materials to produce the finished good or service. Moreover, output tax is the tax you collect from your customers or clients through the goods or services.
