Under the UAE Corporate Tax (CT) Law, the Federal Tax Authority (FTA) aligns the timeline for Tax Registration with the issuance date of the business license. FTA issued Decision No.3 of 2024, where taxable persons are provided from 1 to 3 months of time from their license renewal date. The first deadline being May 31, 2024 applicable for license anniversary dates falling between January 1 to February 29. For entities holding multiple licenses, the one with the earliest issuance date is designated for tax registration purposes. This connection between license issuance and tax obligations underscores the importance of timely compliance with UAE’s corporate tax regulations. Businesses should ensure they understand and follow these guidelines to remain compliant and avoid potential penalties.
