The Federal Tax Authority (FTA) has outlined a simple four-step online procedure allowing businesses to easily submit their tax returns via the e-Services portal on the Authority’s website.

The FTA launched a comprehensive awareness campaign titled “filing Returns in 4 Steps”, covering social, digital and other media channels. The campaign targets businesses registered for Value Added Tax (VAT), introducing them to the online system that the FTA had launched. From the beginning of February 2018, the system has been open to receiving tax returns for the first Tax Period ending on January 31, 2018, for some businesses, which are required to submit their returns no later than February 28, 2018.

Khalid Al Bustani, FTA Director General, said that tax returns can be submitted 24/7 through the e-Services portal on the Authority’s website, which was designed based on international best practice to help registrants submit their tax returns and raise tax awareness among the public.
