The Federal Tax Authority (FTA) has announced that it will launch the EmaraTax platform on Monday, December 5 2022. The migration to EmaraTax will commence from the end of day on Wednesday 30 November to take the advantage of the National Day holiday and to minimize disruption to taxpayers. The migration to EmaraTax has also been planned well in advance of the usual tax return submission and payment dates. EmaraTax will be available for use on 5 December.
EmaraTax significantly enhances the way that taxpayers can access the FTA’s services, pay their taxes and obtain refunds. The new online platform also greatly enhances the ability of the FTA to administer taxes in the UAE, enables better, faster decision-making and earlier engagement with taxpayers that need support.
The new online platform aligns with the UAE Digital Government Strategy 2025 and the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, Ruler of Dubai, to leverage emerging technologies and build a solid digital infrastructure that serves the people and business community of the UAE.
EmaraTax will go-live on 5th December 2022.

Once live, taxpayers will be able to benefit from the improved and feature-rich online platform designed to revolutionise the way they manage their taxes. Additionally, the FTA will continue until the first quarter of next year to launch additional services and features in phases, including an EmaraTax application for mobile phones.
The FTA is committed to ensuring that every taxpayer has an opportunity to learn more about the key features of EmaraTax.
A dedicated microsite has also been launched which includes information about using EmaraTax, educational videos, Frequently Asked Questions, and the joining details for the free webinars. Important information will also be sent directly to taxpayers via their registered email address. For more information please visit Federal Tax Authority – EmaraTax
