Excise Tax Return Filing

An Excise Tax Return is a record of the excise paid during each tax period. Businesses should file returns for excise tax online using the FTA portal. Excise tax returns should be submitted within 15 days after the relevant tax period. Excise tax should be paid 15 days after the end of the calendar month. If the filing deadline falls on a weekend or a national holiday, it will be shifted to the first working day that follows the holiday or the weekend.


It is always advised to file excise tax returns on time, even if the excise tax has already been paid. Filing excise returns late, or not filing them at all, will attract penalties from the FTA. In some instances, it happens that the FTA refunds the excise tax which has previously been paid on excise goods. Therefore, the taxable person can deduct the value of the tax from the total excise tax payable to the FTA on his excise tax return in the next month.
