What is FTA Audit

An FTA tax audit is reviewing submitted tax documents to verify that the declared taxes were accurate as per the UAE tax legislation. Taxes like VAT are self-assessment taxes, which means taxpayers declare the amount of tax payable. 

FTA conducts audits to ensure all dues are paid on time and all businesses are in compliance with FTA laws and regulations.

What Triggers an FTA Tax Audit in the UAE

FTA may target a business for various factors. However, it is not necessary that you have done something to trigger an audit. FTA can audit any tax entity in the UAE anytime anywhere.

However, there are still certain factors that could be the reason, for an FTA audit, such as:

  • Cash-based businesses
  • Export/import focused companies
  • Tax return errors
  • Public notifications
  • Large or complex businesses

There are no fixed schedules for an FTA audit. They usually occur at FTA’s discretion.

How to Prepare

The only way to avoid penalties during an FTA audit is to stay prepared in advance. The FTA examine the following factors:

  • A general understanding of how your business operates
  • Internal governance, procedures, and controls in your organisation
  • How accurately you measure sales and transactions
  • Supply chain management and whether data is complete or not
  • Sector risk management, such as cash risks and customs processes

To smoothly manage an audit, you must have everything prepared in advance. Some of the things you can do to be ready are:

  • Proper documentation to show sufficient controls are implemented on the systems and processes in your company
  • Reevaluate your tax returns to find any issues or quick fixes
  • Check for reverse charge and imports
  • If there was inaccurate accounting for foreign exchange
  • Review tax invoice and credit note formats

To avoid any errors, it is best to engage tax professionals from a reliable firm, such as Avyanco. A consultancy firm assists you with testing previous returns, fixing errors, and preparing documentation to ensure compliance with FTA laws and regulations.
