Introduction – Chapter 14 Payment and Refund of Corporate Tax under the UAE Corporate Tax Law

At the end of every Tax Period, Corporate Tax under the UAE Corporate Tax Law becomes due for a Taxable Person.  This is called Corporate Tax Payable.

In such a situation, the Taxable Person can file an application for refund of Corporate Tax under the UAE Corporate Tax Law.
