The Authority stated that the early registration period would be from January 2023 to May 2023 for specific categories of companies operating in the UAE. These companies would receive invitations from the FTA by email and SMS, enabling them to register via the EmaraTax platform.
Next, the FTA would declare when registration would open for other companies and businesses.

When registration begins, companies and businesses starting their financial year on 1 June 2023 would be given priority.
