Tax invoice Format in the UAE
Tax Invoice is the essential document to be issued by a registrant when a taxable supply of goods or services is made. Under VAT in UAE, a Tax Invoice is to be issued by all registrants for taxable supplies to other registrants, where the consideration for the supplies exceeds AED 10,000. Hence, 2 conditions to be met for issuing a Tax Invoice are:
- The recipient should be registered and
- The consideration for the supplies should exceed AED 10,000
Most businesses in UAE, except retail businesses, would be dealing with supplies for which Tax Invoice is to be issued. As the mandatory details required in any Tax Invoice issued by registrants has been laid down in the VAT law, it is essential that all invoices issued under the VAT regime meet these requirements.
If Tax Invoices issued do not contain the required information, it could lead to an Administrative Penalty. In this regard, it would be useful for all businesses to use a software which would automatically pick the details required in a Tax Invoice, notify the user if any mandatory details are not given in the Tax Invoice, generate the Tax Invoice quickly and most importantly, keep updated about all the details that are required to be given in a Tax Invoice. Ensuring that Tax Invoices are issued correctly by suppliers is also important for the recipient of the supply.
The Tax Invoice serves as the basis on which the recipient can claim input tax deduction on the supply. Hence, businesses should take measures to ensure that Tax Invoices issued under VAT are accurate and complete
