A business or individual that receives a tax penalty from FTA can apply for a VAT reconsideration in UAE within 20 business days of receiving the penalty. Providing proof of the reasons for VAT reconsideration would allow the authority to review the decision and waive the penalties for late VAT payments.
The FTA's website provides a form for VAT reconsideration. Companies can submit VAT reconsideration through the website. However, they must submit the reconsideration form and supporting documents in Arabic to appeal any decisions made by FTA. The FTA won't consider a request or supporting documents submitted in English.
It may take up to 40 business days to respond to a valid and complete Clarification request. FTA will ask for additional information if incomplete requests are submitted, and it can take up to 40 business days for the FTA to respond.
