Reconsideration for VAT Penalty Waiver

Resolving tax disputes with a strategic approach

Any person who is liable for penalty can file an application for Reconsideration with the Federal Tax Authority (FTA) if they are not satisfied with the decision. Now, the FTA follows a favourable approach for penalty payers and will review its own decision on the application for Reconsideration. It’s a great relief provided by the FTA to taxpayers.

Furthermore, a taxpayer can also file the reconsideration form for any clarification received by the FTA requesting them to reconsider its clarification. The Reconsideration Form shall be filed within 20 business days from the day a business is being notified of the decision or clarification.

The Reconsideration form should be filed in the Arabic language only and no other language is allowed for filing the application. We discuss the purpose for which the clarification is filed, the eligibility and approach of filing. We remain watchful throughout the process.

With our breadth of experience and knowledge in the subject, we can assist companies in compiling and submitting all the necessary documents required for the Reconsideration within the stipulated time period of 20 business days. Our professionals will provide you with in-depth insights into the intricate procedures of the legal provisions. We can help you draft legal and expert submissions to include technical and procedural arguments.
