How We Assist with UAE VAT Reconsideration Appeals
To contest or appeal decisions made by tax authorities in the UAE, a formal notice must be submitted within 20 days from the date of the decision’s issuance. This decision notice may come from either the Federal Tax Authority (FTA) or the Financial Control Authority (FCA) and could be in the form of a letter, penalty notice, assessment, or another official document. Appeals submitted after the 20-day period are unlikely to receive favorable consideration and must be drafted in Arabic.

- Business name and the name of the business owner.
- The reference number indicated in the relevant tax authority’s decision notice.
- Specific details about the assessment or decision you are challenging.
- A clear statement detailing your desired outcome for the appeal. For instance, if disputing the calculated tax amount, specify what you believe the correct amount should be, and provide the methodology for this conclusion.

Procedure Following the Submission of a Application in the UAE
Upon submitting a Value-Added Tax (VAT) Reconsideration Application in the United Arab Emirates, the local tax authority initiates a comprehensive review process. This evaluation takes place within 20 days following the date of your application’s submission. Your appointed tax agents will serve as the primary point of contact and will promptly inform you of any decisions made by the tax authority.
Typically, you may be invited to engage in a consultative discussion with a designated representative from the local tax authority. This meeting serves as an opportunity for you to provide supplementary information that supports your appeal. The tax authority aims to foster a transparent and collaborative environment to ensure a fair and accurate evaluation of all applications.
It is worth noting that both the Federal Tax Authority (FTA) and the Federal Customs Authority (FCA) have the discretion to affirm an appeal and approve a VAT Reconsideration Application.
