UAE: Extended deadline for excise tax (COVID-19)

UAE: Extended deadline for excise tax (COVID-19)

The tax authority of the United Arab Emirates has extended the due date for filing the excise tax return and for paying excise tax for the month of March 2020 by one month (from 15 April 2020 to 17 May 2020) in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

To facilitate this extension within the existing legal framework, the tax authority also extended the (monthly) tax period that began 1 March 2020 by one month, so that it will now end on 30 April 2020 instead of 31 March 2020 and will therefore be, in essence, a two-month tax period.

Notwithstanding that tax period extension to 30 April 2020, the tax authority announcement indicates that excise registered taxpayers will be required to:

  • File separate excise tax returns for March 2020 and April 2020 by 17 May 2020
  • Pay excise tax for March 2020 and April 2020 by 17 May 2020
