The Federal Decree Law Number 8 of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) requires a registrant to apply for Tax De-registration if the following conditions are met:

  1. If he stops making Taxable Supplies.
  2. If the value of the Taxable Supplies which are made over a period of (12) consecutive months is less than the Voluntary VAT Registration Threshold and said Registrant does not anticipate that they’ll cross the Voluntary registration threshold during the coming 30-days.

The Registrant must apply to the Authority for VAT de-registration in accordance with the cases mentioned above, within (20) business days of the occurrence of any of them.

The Federal Tax Authority (FTA) shall accept a VAT Registrant’s application for Tax De-registration where the above two conditions are met.

VAT De-Registration for VAT in the UAE is an online process which is accessible in the Federal Tax Authority’s online portal. Before proceeding for VAT De- registration, the applicant should consider various aspects such as turnover requirements or discontinuation of business etc.
