In line with its announcements during the past few weeks, the Federal Tax Authority has confirmed that the EmaraTax is in its final stages of development and will go live on 5th December 2022. Further, Wednesday, 30 November, will see the migration to EmaraTax.
In order to minimize disruption for taxpayers, the FTA is moving to EmaraTax during National Day and well ahead of the usual deadlines for tax return submission and payment.
As a result of EmaraTax, taxpayers will have greater access to the FTA's services, be able to pay their taxes and receive refunds. Additionally, the new platform enhances the FTA's ability to administer taxes in the UAE, enabling better, faster decisions and earlier engagement with taxpayers who require assistance.

As part of its efforts to streamline the user experience, EmaraTax integrates with influential government entities like the UAE Central Bank and national technology-based programs like UAE PASS. Furthermore, this aligns with the UAE's national digital agenda to leverage emerging technologies and build a robust digital infrastructure for people and businesses.
In accordance with the UAE Digital Government Strategy 2025 and the directives issued by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, Ruler of Dubai, the new platform will leverage emerging technologies and create a robust digital infrastructure to serve the UAE's people and business community.
EmaraTax offers easy-to-use navigation, intuitive design, and improved self-help options. A mobile version will also be available shortly.
As soon as the platform goes live, taxpayers can manage their taxes online using an improved and feature-rich platform. Moreover, the FTA will continue to expand its services and features until the first quarter of next year, including the EmaraTax mobile application.
