Every business entity has to issue a UAE VAT Credit Note, whenever the goods are returned or the invoice issued is overbilled.
VAT in UAE is expected to be implemented from 1st January 2018. Businesses must be ready for the VAT billing system.
A Credit note is a document issued by a supplier on a customer reduction or discount in the price on the original VAT invoice.
Payment of VAT to the government reduces on account of Credit Notes.
Goods return or reduction in billing amount reduces your tax liability as the goods or services supplied have been reduced by that amount.
Usually, VAT Collected on Sales – VAT on Credit Notes = VAT payable to the government.
To know more about the VAT you can visit the official website of Ministry of Finance – UAE www.mof.gov.ae
