Common questions & answers.

Is accounting mandatory in the UAE?

Yes, accounting is mandatory for companies operating in the UAE. Businesses are required to maintain accurate financial records and comply with accounting standards set by the UAE authorities.

Do the accounts need to be in any specific format?

The Ministerial Decision No. 114 of 2023 specifies that the only Accounting Standards accepted in the UAE for corporate tax purposes are the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and the International Financial Reporting Standard for small and medium-sized entities (IFRS for SMEs).

Do accounts need to be audited?

In the UAE mainland and most free zones, auditing companies’ financial statements and books of accounts is mandatory. Companies must appoint licensed auditors to do so. The authorities penalise companies that do not present audit reports.

Now, the tax system in the UAE is becoming more active, and companies are finding it necessary to maintain their accounting records and audits. This gives the company better insights into which areas of the company require more attention and how they can be handled in the future.

What is the accounting date for the UAE companies?

The accounting date, also known as the financial year-end for UAE companies, is typically determined by the company’s memorandum and articles of association. It can vary from one company to another and is usually set based on business needs and industry practices. The financial year-end date is crucial for preparing financial statements and tax filings in accordance with regulatory requirements.
