Dubai: Running a business in the UAE? Got a suggestion to make on the corporate tax processes or any of the other tax related matters in the UAE?

Then, send those suggestions to the Federal Tax Authority. The UAE regulator wants business owners to keep an open channel with it, as part of 'Zero Government Bureaucracy Program' launched by the UAE Government.

Business sectors can 'share their ideas and proposals for sustainably developing the Authority’s services', the FTA said in a statement. The intent is all about 'streamlining government procedures and doing away with unnecessary requirements'.

“Since inception, the Federal Tax Authority has been committed to engaging stakeholders in the continuous development of its tax systems and procedures,” said Khalid Al Bustani, the FTA Director-General. “Taxpayers’ feedback is always taken into consideration; their opinions and suggestions are always welcome.”

The Authority hosted a Suhoor event for more than 210 representatives of UAE based companies, including SMEs, and government entities.

“The Authority is working to launch a series of initiatives to accelerate tax procedures and contribute to the Zero Government Bureaucracy Program," said Al Bustani. This was launched during the sessions organised by the UAE Government to strengthen partnerships with the private sector.

“The FTA participated in the program which aims to do away with 2,000 government processes in just one year, cutting the time needed to avail government services by 50 per cent," he added. "The Authority will continue to provide facilities with its services, cutting down on its procedures, and minimising the time required to complete its services.”
