Frequently Asked Question

We do not fall under VAT registration threshold de we have to keep updated record?
Every business should maintain their financial records in any event, in case FTA needs to establish whether business should be registered.
Why do we hire you when we can do it ourselves?
In house staff can file and maintain record. It is not a legal obligation. But as our understanding businesses should keeping in contact with VAT professional firms and at least get review reports for your work that would be beneficial as FTA issues continuous updates and missing one or some of them would cause hefty fines and problems for the business.
Do you file reconsideration form?
We file on request of client reconsideration form. It should be filed in Arabic and within 20 days of the said decision. So, if clients inform us within time range then it’s possible. But keep in mind reconsideration form is different than the voluntary disclosure submission.
