Debit Notes Under UAE VAT

When a supplier makes an excess supply of goods forget to report in the Tax Invoice or mentions less price (underbills), it is a form of taxable supply.

The supplier levies VAT at the regular rate against a Tax Invoice. When the supply made is not reported in the invoice, the VAT for those products needs to be collected from the customer.

Under the basic accounting principles, a debit note is issued to the customer. But with the effect of VAT, a Tax Debit Note will be issued to customers against non-reporting of goods or undercharged prices of goods.

Law for Issuance of Tax Debit Notes

There is no perpetual law for debit notes in the VAT Decree-Law or the Executive Regulations. The rules applicable will be the same as the Tax Invoice.

A debit note is considered the same as a tax invoice as it is missed for collection VAT from the customers. The supplier can either issue a debit note or a new tax invoice for the non-reported or underbilled products.

VAT Regulations For UAE VAT “Tax Debit Note”

With the implementation of VAT since January 2017, every registered person has to issue a VAT compliant Tax Invoice to customers.

Federal Tax Authority has issued some regulations and notifications for Tax invoices.  These regulations are given below for your easy reference.

According to Article 59 of Executive Regulations under Cabinet Decision No. 52, Point number 1 a Tax invoice must contain the following details:

  1. The word “Tax Invoice” is displayed on the invoice.
  2. The name, address, and Tax Registration Number of the Registrant making the supply.
  3. The name, address, and Tax Registration Number of the Recipient where he is a Registrant.
  4. A sequential Tax Invoice number or a unique number enables identification of the Tax Invoice and the order of the Tax Invoice in any sequence of invoices.
  5. The date of issuing the Tax Invoice.
  6. “Date of supply” if it is different from the date the Tax Invoice was issued.
  7. A description of the Goods or Services supplied.
  8. For each Good or Service, the unit price, the quantity or volume supplied, the rate of tax, and the amount payable must be expressed in AED.

  12. Where the invoice relates to a supply under which the Recipient of Goods or Recipient of Services is required to account for Tax, a statement that the Recipient is required to account for Tax, and a reference to the relevant provision of the Decree-Law.


Effect of Debit Note on VAT Liability

A Tax Debit Note increases the tax liability and also increases the amount of input tax.

A debit note is a document that a supplier issues in response to underbilling of products or excess supply of goods in the original VAT invoice. Due to Debit Notes, the amount of VAT paid to the government is increased.

Because the value of the goods or services provided has been increased by that amount, underbilling and excess supply increases your tax burden.

VAT on Sales + VAT on Debit Notes – VAT on Credit Notes = VAT Payable
