The Federal Tax Authority (FTA) said a taxable person or an official representative can register for value-added tax (VAT) in 3 easy steps through its website, taking no longer than 15 to 20 minutes.

In a statement on Saturday, the authority pointed out that registration in the system is free of charge and available 24/7 through the FTA website.

Businesses are required to access the website: Go to the e-Services portal and set up an account by clicking on 'Registration'. A verification e-mail is then sent, following which the account is accessible through the 'Login' button. Users can then begin the 3-step registration process by going to 'Create an Account', filling the form and finally clicking 'Submit for Approval'.

The FTA has urged businesses to provide accurate information and make sure they enter it properly into the application form. To complete the registration process, scanned documents must be attached, including the business or trade licence, passport/Emirates ID (for UAE residents) of the manager or owner of the business, and the authorised signatory (if the signatory is not the manager him/herself), as well as proof of authorisation for the manager or signatory (e.g. articles of association, power of attorney attested by notary, etc.).
