As per UAE VAT Law, there are two types of VAT registrations in UAE. One is Mandatory VAT Registration & the other is Voluntary VAT Registration.
Federal Tax Authority has clarified that a person can apply for an exception from VAT registration in UAE if 100% of his supplies/sales are Zero-rated as per the provisions of the Law. Such persons who want to opt for the exception from VAT registration shall notify the authority about their decision through the VAT registration form. Authority, if they feel such exception is reasonable, will accept the application of the exception.
As per UAE VAT laws, any person conducting business in UAE is not allowed to have more than one VAT Registration number. Any person who has economic, financial or regulatory interests in multiple organizations may group their entities under one tax group.
Such grouping of businesses under one tax group eases the compliance requirements of the UAE VAT Laws. The tax group shall be considered as one single entity for the purposes of UAE VAT. Any transactions between the entities inside tax group shall be out of the scope of UAE VAT.
