UAE CORPORATE TAX REGISTRATION: All taxable persons, including Free Zone Persons, must complete the registration process for Corporate Tax and obtain a unique Corporate Tax Registration Number prior to submitting their initial corporate tax returns.

In addition, the Federal Tax Authority may also request specific Exempt Persons to undergo the registration process for Corporate Tax.

UAE branches of domestic juridical persons are not obligated to register or submit separate filings for UAE Corporate Tax, as they are considered extensions of their primary “parent” or “head office” and are not regarded as independent legal entities.

How to register for Corporate Tax in the UAE?

To register for corporate tax in the UAE, you’ll need to follow the procedures outlined by the Federal Tax Authority (FTA). Here are the general steps to register for corporate tax in the UAE:

1. Login/ Create an e-Services account

  • Visit the FTA’s official website and login into the EmaraTax account using your login credentials or using UAE Pass. Sign up for a new account if you don’t already have one. This account will be used for all tax-related activities.

5. Wait for verification

6. Receive Corporate Tax Registration Number

Typically, the same deadline also applies to the settlement of any Corporate Tax liabilities pertaining to the Tax Period for which the return is filed.
