VAT registration of ‘Sole Establishments’ clarification VATP026 replaces Public Clarification VATP021.

VAT registration of ‘Sole Establishments’ clarification:-  VATP026 replaces Public Clarification VATP021.

A natural or legal person may own a number of sole  establishments. There has been uncertainty on whether each sole establishment needs to obtain a separate VAT registration or whether all such establishments should be included under one VAT registration.

This Public Clarification clarifies the VAT registration obligations of a person in respect of its sole establishments. Note that the term “person” refers to a natural or legal person.

A person owning a number of sole establishments should obtain only one VAT registration for all its sole establishments, and it is not permissible to register each sole establishment separately for VAT. The Federal Tax Authority (‘FTA’) will review, in certain cases, the VAT registrations by taxable persons in respect of sole establishments and will inform them of the corrective steps to be taken, if any.
