Tax Invoices The Agreement requires tax invoices to be issued in relation to the supply of taxable goods or services, including a deemed supply, and in cases where there is either full or partial receipt of consideration prior to the supply. The GCC Ministerial Committee determines the minimum details required, and the VAT Law and Regulations specify both the content and timings for the issuing of invoices. The VAT Law requires that the taxable person must issue an original invoice and deliver it to the recipient of the goods and services, including where the taxable person has made a deemed supply, unless there is no recipient, in which case it must be kept in the taxable person’s records.

A valid tax invoice must show the following:

a)The words ‘tax invoice’ in a prominent place;

b)The supplier's name, address and Tax Registration Number;

c)Where the recipient is VAT registered, it must show the recipient's name, address and Tax Registration Number;

d)A sequential, number based on one or more series which uniquely identifies the document invoice number;

e)The date when this Tax invoice is being issued;

f)The date of the supply i.e. tax point, if different from the invoice date;

g)There must also be a description sufficient to identify the goods or services being supplied;

h)The invoice must also for each description of goods or services on that invoice show the unit price, the quantity or volume supplied, the rate of tax and the amount payable expressed in AED.

i)The amount of any discount offered;

j)The gross amount payable, expressed in AED;

k)The tax amount payable, expressed in AED together with the rate of any exchange applied and the source of the exchange rate applied where the currency is converted from any currency other than UAE dirhams;

l)Where the customer is required to account for VAT, e.g. reverse charge, then a statement to that fact and a reference to the relevant provision of the law.

Art. 67 of the VAT Law requires that a tax invoice must be issued within 14 days of the date of supply. If the currency stated on the invoice is not AED then the amount stated will be converted into AED, according to the exchange rate approved by the Central Bank at the date of supply. If there are or will be sufficient records available to establish the particulars of a supply, a taxable person is not required to issue a tax invoice where the supply is a wholly zero-rated supply. (Art. 59(3) of the Regulations)

      There are mainly three types of VAT in UAE. That is Standard Rate, Zero Rated and Exempt Supplies
      1. Standard Rated and Zero Rated are taxable supplies while exempt are non - taxable supplies
      2. On Zero rated supplies there is not vat but it is still considered as taxable supplies
      3. When we are calculating the revenue we should also consider zero rated sales for registration purposes and we must have to mention the total amount of zero rated sales in vat return of each quarter
      4. We can claim input vat on zero rated sales just like standard rated sales. We can only not claim Input vat on exempt sales
      5. If the supply is zero rated or exempt. Zero rated will always take priority
