What Are the Requirements for Corporate Tax De registration?

You must register for corporate tax if your business is a corporation. You may be required to deregister your business when it ceases to be subject to corporate tax. You must apply to the FTA within three months from the date of cessation. The FTA will deregister your business if it is satisfied that you have filed corporate tax returns and settled all of its corporate tax liabilities and penalties that are due for all periods up to and including the date of cessation.

The UAE Corporate Tax Return Filing Process

The FTA provides for a single, consolidated corporate tax return to be filed by eligible businesses, rather than requiring them to file multiple returns. This consolidated return must be filed within nine months of the end of each relevant tax period.

UAE Corporate Tax deadlines

The corporate tax regime is based on a self-assessment principle which means businesses are responsible for ensuring that the documents they submit to the FTA are correct and comply with the law.

The new UAE corporate tax regime allows taxpayers up to 21 months from the start of their financial year to prepare for filing and making their tax payments.

For example, businesses with a financial year starting on June 1, 2023, and ending on May 31, 2024, have until February 28, 2025 to file their corporate tax returns and make their payments.

For a business whose first tax period begins on January 1, 2024 and ends on December 31, 2024, the return and payment must be filed between January 1 and September 30, 2025.
