Federal Tax Authority clarifies what should be displayed in your receipt
VAT in UAE: This is what your receipt should look like
UAE's Federal Tax Authority has released an example of a receipt from a business registered for value added tax.
The FTA said that four items on the receipt should be clearly marked:
- Tax receipt displayed
- Tax registration number
- Price that includes VAT
- Amount of VAT added

VAT in the UAE came into effect on January 1, 2018.
