The UAE Federal Tax Authorities (FTA) have issued an excise tax user guide providing clarifications on completing excise tax obligations.

The guide details the following steps with regard to excise tax:

  • creating an e-services account with the FTA;
  • registering for excise tax;
  • late registration penalty payment;
  • amending approved excise tax registration form; and
  • excise tax deregistering.

The user guide was published on the FTA's website on 10 September 2020.
