Excise Tax Registration Services:

An integral part of running any business is ensuring that you maintain compliance with regards to taxation. Since taxation laws undergo frequent changes and revisions, it might be a little difficult to keep up all the time. As a result, to help companies cope with these changes,
revisions, additions and removal of tariffs, various companies provide Excise Tax Registration Services. In this article, we will take a look at why Excise Tax Registration Services are essential, and how KGRN can help you with the same.

What is Excise Tax Registration?

Every business based in the UAE that manufactures, imports, exports or stores excise goods must register for the Federal Excise Tax. As a result, if you wish to deal, release, transfer or trade such goods, you will need to be registered under the Excise Tax regime in the UAE. The
UAE government decided to introduce such an Excise Tax in 2017 on tobacco products, carbonated drinks and sport or energy drinks. Two years later, in 2019, the government decided to extend the Excise Tax to e-cigarettes, soft drinks and e-liquids. In effect, the Emirati
government charges Excise Tax on goods that harm human health and the environment. As a result, if you are a business that in any way deals with such products, you will need to register for the Excise Tax.
