Companies in UAE may choose to register for VAT voluntarily as well, if their taxable goods and services are less than the mandatory registration threshold but exceed the voluntary registration threshold of AED 187,500. Correspondingly, a business entity may get UAE VAT registration voluntarily irrespective, but the opportunity to register voluntarily is intended to allow start-up businesses with no turnover to register for VAT, in their own time and pace.
