Requirement to register for Excise Tax

There is no registration threshold for Excise Tax, therefore any person who is involved in any of the activities listed below must register and account for Excise Tax.

Activities requiring Excise Tax registration


Any business which releases excise goods from a designated zone, imports, produces, or stockpiles excise goods in the UAE, should register for Excise Tax.

What is a stockpiler?


Stockpiler is a person or business that holds a stock of excise goods for business purposes and cannot prove that Excise Tax has been previously paid on these goods.

If a person or business is not considered to be a stockpiler, it will not need to account for Excise Tax on goods owned after the introduction of the tax that were purchased before the introduction of Excise Tax.

The Excise Tax Executive Regulations contain further details of the circumstances in which you would be considered to be a stockpiler.
