When to Be Ready for DMCC Audit in the UAE for the Year 2021
According to the implementing regulations, a DMCC Member Company has to upload the auditor’s signed and stamped Audited Financial Statements Summary Sheet and the Audited Financial Statements Report via a designated online service request on the member portal within 90 days after the end of each financial year.
As per the Approved Auditors Rules (AAR) issued on 12th January 2017, it is the responsibility of each DMCC member company to ensure that their appointed auditor is registered as an Approved Auditor with DMCCA and is listed in the Approved Auditors List (AAL).
Original documents should be well maintained with the company and made available upon request by the DMCC Inspection Team. Submission of Audited Financials is applicable to all DMCC companies including subsidiaries and branch companies.
DMCC Authority reserves the right to request additional documents at any stage of the process as well as to request the original documents during the inspection.
Documents Required to be Maintained by the DMCC Company
Steps for successful submission of the audited financial statement :
1. Members are requested to advise their auditors to download the template “Company Audited Financial Statements Summary Sheet”, which can be found at www.dmcc.ae/managing-a- company > Compliance Services > Company Audited Financial Statements Summary Sheet.
2. The auditor will then need to complete, sign and stamp the Company Audited Financial Statements Report Summary Sheet and print it on the auditor’s letterhead along with the Audited Financial Statements report.
3. Once members have the two documents prepared, signed and stamped by the auditor, they will need to log on their portal and go to Company Services, then click on Compliance Services, where they will need to create a service request titled “Submit Company Audited Financial Statements Summary Sheet and Report”.
4. Members are requested to fill out the fields by entering the numbers and details as stated in the “Company Audited Financial Statements Summary Sheet”.
5. Members are requested to tick the declaration box to confirm that the information provided is true and correct; noting that it is an offense to enter false information. Then, click “Save”.
