VAT Amendments

A situation may occur that can influence the tax records submitted during VAT registration to the FTA, the FTA must be updated about it by making amendments in the record within 20 business days of the situation occurring. Hence, for a VAT registered business to make an amendment in the VAT registration application on the FTA portal, the ‘Edit’ or ‘Amendment’ button must be clicked.

The ‘Edit’ button can be used to edit the business activities section, the GCC activities section and the customs registration information section. The changes made by using the ‘Edit’ button once saved will appear automatically on your profile as it doesn’t need FTA’s approval.

To make amendments in the applicant’s details, contact details, banking details, business relationships, about the VAT application and declaration’s section, the ‘Amendment’ button must be used. Since these changes require approval from the FTA, the changes will only appear on the profile of the applicant if the FTA approves. The FTA can approve or reject the changes or ask for some additional information in which case the status of the application will appear as approved, rejected or pending respectively.
