Tax Residency Certificate (TRC) for a company

Obtaining a Tax Residency Certificate (TRC) for a company in Dubai involves a process similar to the one for individuals, but with some differences. Here’s a general guide:

  1. Company Eligibility: Ensure that your company is eligible for a TRC. Generally, this involves having a valid trade license and meeting any other requirements set by the tax authorities.
  2. Document Preparation: Gather the necessary documents, which may include:
    • Trade license copy
    • Memorandum of Association (MOA)
    • Passport copies of company directors
    • Financial statements
    • Utility bills or lease agreement for the company’s office
  3. Visit the Tax Authority: Go to the relevant tax authority in Dubai. For corporate matters, this is often the Federal Tax Authority (FTA).
  4. Application Submission: Fill out the TRC application form for companies and submit it along with the required documents. Ensure that all information provided is accurate.
  5. Pay Fees: Pay any applicable fees for the TRC application. The fees can vary depending on the type and size of the company.
  6. Interview and Inspection: Some authorities may conduct an interview or inspection of the company premises as part of the application process. Be prepared for this possibility.
  7. Wait for Approval: The processing time varies, so be patient. You may receive a notification when the TRC is ready for collection.
  8. Collect the TRC: Once approved, collect the TRC from the tax authority’s office.
  9. Renewal (if necessary): Keep track of the TRC’s validity period and initiate the renewal process when required.

As always, it’s crucial to stay updated with the latest regulations and requirements from the relevant authorities or consult with us.
