The deadline to submit ESR Notification is within 6 months of your financial year-end. For Example, if your financial year ended on 30th June 2022, you need to file your ESR Notification by no later than 31st December 2022.
Under the UAE Ministry of Finance Guidelines on Economic substance Regulation(ESR), for organizations engaged in any ESR-relevant activities, the due date for filing an ESR Notification is six months from the end of the financial year.
However, if the business has generated income from the relevant activities (unless exempt), the ESR Report needs to be filed within twelve months from the end of the financial year.
