UAE VAT Sales Register is a document that maintains the records of your sales during a specific period along with details of Output VAT collected on those sales.
Earlier, we maintained records of sales, but those records were without VAT calculations.
UAE is all set to implement VAT from Jan 2018 and businesses have been instructed to get VAT ready.
The VAT collected by you n sales of goods or services is called Output Tax.
According to Article 4 of Federal Decree-Law No. (8) of 2017 on Value Added Tax, It is the responsibility of the taxable person to collect VAT whenever a taxable supply takes place.
See imager below:
You can download the pdf copy of Federal Decree-Law No. (8) of 2017 on Value Added Tax from the link below:
The VAT paid on purchases of raw material intended to be used in the making of the taxable supply is called UAE VAT Recoverable Input Tax.
When you purchase goods you can maintain your purchase records in our UAE VAT Purchase Register.
Whenever you make any sales, you are entitled to collect the VAT on the goods or services you supply.
At the end of the tax period, you pay the difference between output VAT collected and recoverable Input VAT paid.
