    How to calculate corporate tax in UAE?
    Determining taxable income is the first step to calculate corporate tax. Certain adjustments such as non-deductible expenses, realised/unrealised gains or losses, exempt income, and related expenses, are made to the accounting income, to arrive at the taxable income. Benefits of certain reliefs are also provided for to arrive at the taxable income. Taxable income above Dh375,000 is then charged at 9% and paid as corporate tax.

    Is it mandatory to register for corporate tax in the UAE?
    Yes. It is mandatory for every juridical person incorporated in the UAE. For individuals and juridical persons not registered/incorporated in the UAE, the registration for corporate tax is mandatory only if they conduct business activities in the UAE or have a permanent establishment/nexus in the UAE respectively.

    Will it be possible for many corporations to file as a single tax entity under certain circumstances?
    Yes, it is possible for corporations who are resident juridical persons to file as a single tax entity, provided they own a minimum of 95% of the share capital, directly or indirectly, by making an application to the FTA to this effect.
