Excise TRN Registration

Businesses required to register for excise tax

Under the UAE Federal Decree Law No. 7 of 2017 on Excise Tax, registering for excise tax is the responsibility of any business engaged in:

  • the import of excise goods into the UAE
  • the production of excise goods where they are released for consumption in the UAE
  • the stockpiling of excise goods in the UAE in certain cases
  • anyone who is responsible for overseeing an excise warehouse or designated zone i.e. a warehouse keeper.

FTA is committed to providing extensive support and guidance to assist with this; however, the responsibility lies with the business to make sure that any required compliance obligations are fulfilled.

FTA has the power to conduct audits of taxable corporates and subsequently impose penal measures on those that do not comply with the law.
