Remember to keep submitting returns and making payments
Please keep submitting any tax returns and making payments due as usual. Any important developments relating to the submission of returns or the making of payments will be communicated here, on our social media channels, or through email.
Important enhancements have been made to the way you pay
We have introduced some significant enhancements in this area to help taxpayers. Give yourself extra time to get used to the changes and ensure that we receive payments on time.
Generate a unique payment reference number for GIBAN payments
You should always include the unique reference number when making payments using GIBAN. This unique number is used to ensure that your payments are accurately allocated against your selected liabilities.
UAE banks and other financial institutions are integrated with EmaraTax
This means that when making a GIBAN payment the unique reference number will be used to validate the GIBAN and the amount payable If the details you provide at the time of payment are incorrect, your payment will be rejected.
Use MagnatiPay to make online payments
We no longer accept eDirham as a payment method. MagnatiPay is our new payment gateway. It accepts payments made using any Visa or Mastercard prepaid, debit or credit card. Please contact your issuing bank to redeem any remaining eDirham balances.
Keep a copy of our quick guide to payments to hand
You can download a copy of the EmaraTax payments guide here. It provides an overview of the new payment processes you need to follow whether you pay via GIBAN or online using MagnatiPay.
