Dubai: Federal Tax Authorities clarify the details that ought to be shown in the Tax Invoice. The following elements have to be compulsorily mentioned on the bill.

•Name and address of the establishment
•Tax registration number of the establishment
•Sequential tax invoice number
•Date of issue
•Amount paid as Value Added Tax (VAT)

According to the federal law, sequential tax invoice number or a unique number and date of issue are to be included in the tax invoice as it helps to identify the tax invoice and the order of the invoice in any sequence.

The tax authority urges the consumers to review tax invoices before they pay the bill, as businesses aren’t allowed to charge VAT if they were not registered.
