DMCC Audit Deadline 2022 - DMCC Audit Report Submission Date

For most of our clients, the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) had extended the submission of the Audited Financial Statement (AFS) with the financial year-end date 31st of December 2021 from 29th of June 2022 to the 30th of September 2022 but for confirming that, you need to check your portal. Also, note that this was for the year 2022.

For example, if an entity’s financial year ends by December 31, 2022, then that entity must submit its audited financial statements by March 30, 2023. The financial year is decided by the company itself. It will be mentioned in the MoA of the company.  An extension of another 3 months was granted upon the special request of an appointed auditor. 

For New Companies

Basically, If you are a new company in DMCC you are supposed to submit an ” Auditor Appointment Letter” to the DMCC in the year of incorporation.

To emphasize, Alya Auditors is an approved DMCC auditor and we are available to meet the mandatory requirements of audit to secure your ongoing trading license. We are also providing Auditor Appointment letter for companies.

Will all the Audit Reports be Acceptable by the DMCC?

An audit performed by a non-approved DMCC auditor will not be accepted by the DMCC authorities.

A full set of audited financial statements and an audit summary issued by DMCC approved auditor must be submitted online at the entity’s online DMCC portal before the deadline. Also, officials of the DMCC compliance department may require the entity to submit the original audited financial statements at any time.

Is Audit Mandatory for Companies in DMCC free zone?

The annual external audit is mandatory for all DMCC registered companies. To perform an audit for JLT and DMCC free zone companies, DMCC authorities have published a list of approved auditors.  To become registered audit firms in DMCC Free Zone, auditors in Dubai should have a valid professional license from Economic Department.

Do DMCC Companies need to submit their Audited Financial Statements to the Authority?

The DMCC mandates that the audited financial statements and summary sheets need to be submitted annually. Submission of the annual audit report and renewed trade license has to be uploaded within 90 days after fiscal year-end through DMCC Portal.

Is there any penalty if DMCC companies are not audited?

Failure to submit audited financial statements to the DMCC will result in a fine of AED 5,000 and suspension of the DMCC online portal for the entity. Suspension of the DMCC portal means the entity will not be able to communicate with DMCC.
