VAT De-Registration in UAE

VAT deregistration, also known as cancellation or termination of VAT registration is typically done when a business needs to cancel its VAT registration with the Tax Authority. VAT deregistration is an online process to deregister from tax. The VAT deregistration process is as important as it is to register for a VAT. There are two types of VAT deregistration services that entities can choose before applying for VAT deregistration. Following are the VAT deregistration categories are (1) mandatory deregistration, and (2) voluntary deregistration.

A taxable person should mandatorily apply to deregister within 30 days if any of the following applies:

  1. If they no longer carry out economic activities.
  2. If the business has stopped making taxable supplies.
  3. If they are no longer considered a legal entity. (entity Closed)

A taxable person should voluntarily apply to deregister if any of the following applies:

  1. The value of their taxable sales in the past 12 months is between the voluntary threshold and mandatory threshold.
  2. The value of their taxable sales in the next 12 months (including the current month) is between the voluntary threshold and mandatory threshold.

Any person having a TRN and the value of the taxable supplies made over a period of 12 consecutive months is less than the prescribed threshold and they do not anticipate that they’ll cross the threshold during the coming 30-days, the registrant must apply to the Federal Tax Authority for VAT deregistration in UAE.
