UAE Economic Substance Regulations Report – Deadline December 31st 2020

In Brief

The UAE Economic Substance Regulations (ESR) Report filing deadline is fast approaching and the deadline for UAE Licensees carrying out any relevant activity for the year end 2019, to file is December 31st, 2020.

The most recent UAE Economic Substance Regulations Updates have also seen substantial modifications and so all companies must therefore re-evaluate the applicability of the UAE ESR to their businesses, re-notify and prepare and file their ESR Return by December 31st, 2020 as a consequential action.

Administrative penalties of up to AED400, 000 have also been introduced along with suspension or non-renewal of trade licenses.

Contact our corporate team for assistance.

Deadline for the Economic Substance Report is 31st December 2020. Regardless of your company’s previous ESR assessment and classification, you must conduct a reassessment to determine whether the filing of the notification and report, which must be filed with MOF by 31st December 2020 for the year ending 31st December 2019, apply to it.
