As the first step, you should decide, whether you are registering your company or yourself as a natural person. If you have more than one company in operation, analyze whether to register the companies separately or as a Tax Group?
In the UAE, many companies both corporates as well as SMEs operate with multiple licenses and work as one group. The companies might be registered in different emirates under different authorities, but operate together as a group. In such cases, they can look for registering together as a Tax Group. Following conditions are to be satisfied to opt for registering as a Tax Group.
In a practical scenario, even though one is not a shareholder in all companies but is controlling the companies by his power of attorney, it can be considered as a related party for the purpose of a VAT group and can choose Tax Group option. Further while registering as a Tax Group, we should provide evidence of the group structure showing the controlling or shareholding structure as well as a board resolution from each member companies resolving that they have appointed a company as the representative of the group for VAT purpose.
If you are registering your company as a standalone, you can give any one of the UAE bank accounts. You have to provide the name of the bank, branch name, account name and IBAN code. You should give the bank account of the company for which you are registering, and not of any other related party bank account. If you are registering for VAT under TAX group option, you can give only one bank account number; not of all companies of the group. This bank account will be of the representative company which you choose while registering for VAT as Tax Group.
You can submit the application in English as well. However, there are 3 columns where we have to submit the information in Arabic as well.

Following sales are to be considered for arriving the threshold.
