Bookkeeping / Accounting / Auditing, Dubai, UAE

Accounting services, financial reporting and audit is a service that includes consulting, registration of a company in the tax authority, obtaining a tax number, accounting services for a company in the UAE and conducting an audit. As well as preparation and submission of all necessary reports and forms to the Federal Tax Authority and other authorities. Despite the fact that there is no taxation in Dubai and other Emirates of the UAE for most types of activities, annual reporting and subsequent submission of an audit report is a mandatory requirement for almost all types of onshore companies registered in the free economic zones (FTZ) of Dubai and other Emirates. Our company provides consultations and a full list of accounting services on outsourcing basis for all types of legal entities in the UAE.

Preparation of client reports for the submission of the balance sheet and VAT declaration in the required time requires certain knowledge, as well as the qualifications of an accountant who prepares the reports of your resident or non-resident company in accordance with all the necessary regulations and regulatory legal framework of the country.

What are the requirements for the preparation and submission of accounting and audit reports in the UAE?

If we talk about the current laws and regulations required for reporting and auditing, then in fact, in Dubai and other Emirates of the UAE there are two scenarios when this legislative obligation arises:

  • In some free economic zones, there is a requirement for mandatory annual audit submission to the FTZ administration, otherwise the license will not be renewed. At the same time, even if the company did not conduct any activity during the reporting financial period, it is still necessary to submit reports, which, in this case, will be zero report.
  • If a commercial enterprise falls under the obligation to pay Value Added Tax (VAT), then, accordingly, it is subject to tax registration with subsequent submission of quarterly VAT returns to the UAE Federal Tax Service.

Our company offers accounting support services on an outsourcing basis for legal entities registered in all Emirates of the UAE - Dubai, Sharjah, Ras al Khaimah, Ajman, Abu Dhabi, Umm Al Quwain and Fujairah.

Our services:

  • initial consultation and answers to questions on current taxes and fees and all constituent elements, as well as documentation and reporting requirements in the UAE;
  • verification of primary accounting documents: invoices, acts, bills,, receipts, advance payments, contracts, statements from the settlement account, goods and materials, accounting certificates, acts of completed / rendered works and other primary documents;
  • analysis of the existing financial and management accounting system and its maintenance;
  • development of an optimal accounting reporting system taking into account all the requirements of the UAE legislation;
  • assistance in preparing/issuing invoices and preparing other financial documentation;
  • accounting – on a monthly / quarterly / annual basis and preparation of documents for the filing of the annual balance sheet;
  • preparation of interim financial statements for the required period;
  • preparation of accounting documentation for subsequent audit, including cash flow statement, changes in working capital, etc.;
  • submission / filing of all necessary reports / declarations to the Federal Tax Service and other authorities;
  • assistance in drafting documents for hiring employees, accounting / calculation of wages and deductions, in other matters related to the registration and salaries payments to employees;
  • conducting an annual audit and submitting reports to the tax authority;
  • if the company is subject to taxation in the UAE - state registration of a legal entity with the Federal Tax Authority, obtaining a taxpayer identification number (TIN / TRN), accounting of taxes, submission of tax declaration, payment and carrying out offsets / refund of taxes and payments;
  • obtaining certificates of UAE tax residency for companies in the UAE Ministry of Finance;
  • consultations on optimization of reporting processes and preparation of documents for audit.

In addition to services for the preparation of financial flow reports, financial flow statement forms, audits and tax returns for regulatory authorities, there are also other reasons for the preparation of this tax documentation:

  • For internal purposes - for shareholders so that they can evaluate the efficiency of the business, to prepare documents for obtaining financing, to confirm the source of origin of shareholders' funds, etc.
  • For banks - when transferring funds from the company's accounts in the UAE (as well as from accounts to foreign banks), banks can request an interim balance sheet of the company and/or shareholder resolution on the payment of dividends. These documents are also prepared by our specialists.

No company can do without an accountant. At the same time, instead of hiring your full-time chief accountant in the Emirates, you have the opportunity to use the accounting outsourcing services provided by us. Thus, you will receive all the necessary scope of accounting support on outsourcing and at a favorable cost. For your tasks, our firm will appoint one of our accountants who will keep your company's accounts and promptly answer your possible questions.

Our employees who conduct accounting / maintenance and preparation for the audit of company documents in Dubai and other Emirates of the UAE (Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Ajman, Ras Al Khaimah, Fujairah and Umm Al Quwain) have the required professional qualifications, sound practical experience and understanding of customer requirements in terms of this type of professional services.

Accounting services are provided using modern software, in accordance with local regulations of the United Arab Emirates and applicable International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

The scope and nature of accounting and administrative services for companies in the United Arab Emirates has the widest choice – from small targeted matters to a full package of accounting services for companies, conducting various financial document management and auditing. The external audit is conducted directly by our partners in accordance with the principles of independence.

Which companies in the UAE need accounting and reporting?

First of all, onshore companies in certain free trade zones are required to submit an annual report. In addition, if your company is subject to VAT (currently the VAT rate is 5%), it is necessary to submit quarterly VAT declarations to the tax inspectorate and make appropriate payments. The amount of VAT collection is calculated on a quarterly basis.

Also very often, especially recently, banks require financial reporting. In addition, the regulations of some of the FZE specify that all companies must maintain and keep financial statements. Such reporting is certainly also useful for the shareholders of companies. In fact, our recommendation is that all companies in the UAE should ideally keep records and conduct an independent audit.

How to effectively organize accounting?

As in any other country, for effective accounting, you have two solutions - hire your own accountant, which is associated with constant monthly expenses and administrative costs, or, by contracting our company, get an outsourced accountant. If you choose the option when our company provides you with a full package of accounting services, you save your time, get the necessary service at the best price and all your financial statements are prepared in a timely manner and in accordance with local and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

How to get a taxpayer identification number (TIN / TRN ) in the UAE?

If your company is subject to registration with the UAE Federal Tax Service, you just need to contact our staff, and we will prepare and submit all the necessary documents for registration and obtaining a TIN / TRN for your company. The usual time for obtaining a TIN / TRN from the moment of submission of all documents is about 14 days.

What is the cost of accounting and preparation of the balance sheet?

The cost of accounting and audit services depends on the type of activity of the legal entity, turnover / revenue, number of transactions / volume of documents, whether the company is subject to VAT payment, frequency of reporting, the need for additional services and consultations. Also important factors for determining prices are the client's requirements for the urgency of processing and preparation of documents, the software used, the number of employees in your company, etc.

For this reason, there is no fixed price list, and the price is calculated based on the data provided to us by you as the client. It is important to note that our company's fees are more than competitive. At the same time, they should not be compared with the costs of similar services, for example, in India or Philippines - in general, prices for this type of services in the UAE are on average higher, since this is due to relatively high salaries of accountants in the UAE. Contact us and our consultants will evaluate the scope of work and send you a detailed offer with all the details of our services and their costs / fees.

Price list for accounting services in our company

There is no fixed price list in our company. Prices for accounting services depend on various parameters, such as:

  • the form of provision of primary documentation by the client;
  • number and type of bank payments;
  • yearly turnover;
  • the scope and nature of the necessary additional consultations, etc.

The cost / fees of services with monthly payment is affected by: the number of transactions per month, the volume of service packages, the frequency of provision, difficulty and complexity. As well as the degree of standardization of the client's accounting - how detailed the accounting is conducted in the company.

The prices for accounting services that we provide on a regular basis start from 7.000 AED per year, the audit costs our clients from 3.500 AED per year. In order to receive a price offer with a detailed description of the cost of each of the services for your tasks, write to us and we will provide you with all the information based on your specific requirements.

Is there a need to submit tax returns for individuals living in the UAE?

Currently, for individuals living in the United Arab Emirates, there are no taxes and there are no requirements for completing and filing an income tax declaration. All income of individuals in the UAE is completely exempt from any tax payments and duties, and registration with the UAE Federal Tax Service is also not required. Accordingly, no personal income tax reports / declarations for residents need to be submitted to the tax service, income tax is not subject to calculation and collection / payment.

In some countries, there is a legal requirement that each company has its own chief accountant, duly registered and entered in the data in the register of companies. There are no such legal requirements in the UAE. For this reason, you can appoint our company to outsource your accounting.

What are the deadlines for submitting tax reports / declarations?

The standard procedure, deadlines and requirements for the preparation and submission of the company's audit report and its filing - within 6 months after the end of the financial year. The standard financial year of most companies in the UAE corresponds to a calendar year, unless the company has decided otherwise. Regarding the submission of VAT declarations, they are subject to submission on a quarterly basis. After the submission of the VAT report, the payment period is 28 calendar days from the date of the end of the relevant tax period.

What are the accounting outsourcing services?

Outsourcing of accounting services in the UAE is a partial or complete transfer of accounting to a professional accounting company instead of hiring your accountant and paying him a monthly salary.

An outsourced accountant provides a number of advantages:

  • cost savings;
  • the availability of a whole team that conducts all financial reporting for you and answers your questions;
  • there are no problems compared to the situation when, for example, your own accountant is ill, on vacation or quits.

At the same time, this decision is often confused with the decision to periodically hire a freelance accountant.

Outsourcing is the fulfillment of the accounting tasks on a regular basis, vs the involvement of a freelance specialist which is is a one-time solution. In the case when a professional outsourcing company provides you with all accounting services in Dubai - in such a company, in addition to the employee who is assigned to the management of your company's affairs, there are other employees. For this reason, you always have a contact person to solve all your questions. In addition, such a company that outsources for you, in addition to knowledge and qualifications directly on the issues of public services, has other professional qualifications. They can also be very useful to you when doing business in various countries, including the United Arab Emirates.
