The Federal Tax Authority (FTA) has launched its new integrated and fully developed digital tax administration platform “EmaraTax” on Monday.

The platform has been successfully activated, with all services now made available to taxpayers using the latest technologies implemented in the tax field around the world.

In a press statement, the FTA asserted that the transition from the electronic tax system that was previously used, to the new platform, was done seamlessly, with data of all existing users successfully migrated to EmaraTax, enabling them to easily use the new digital platform, with no effect on the transactions carried out by any of the Authority’s customers. All transfer procedures were completed over the National Day holiday.

The Authority noted that the EmaraTax smart application will be launched soon and made available for mobile devices.

FTA Director-General Khalid Ali Al Bustani said, “The launch of EmaraTax is a significant step forward and is in line with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, to embrace modern technologies and establish an integrated digital infrastructure that serves all categories of customers. Launching the new platform is a milestone in the Authority’s ambitious plans to become a leading digital authority in the tax sector, marking a notable leap forward towards advancing the UAE’s tax system.”

The taskforce assigned to implement the project worked non-stop over an extended period of time to build an integrated tax platform powered by the latest technologies and smart programmes used in the tax field, in order to improve the experience for the Authority’s customers and allow them to manage their tax operations and transactions quickly, efficiently, seamlessly, and transparently.

Al Bustani stressed that the EmaraTax platform, launched today, and the EmaraTax smart mobile application set to be introduced soon, offer smart solutions for the sustainable improvement of customer experiences.
