It should be noted if the due date for the submission of the VAT Return and the corresponding payment falls on a weekend or an official public holiday in the UAE, the deadline for filing the VAT Return or making payment of net vat dues is extended to the first business day thereafter.
Example, if your tax period ends on the 30th June 2018, the VAT Return 201 and payment of net vat dues if any must be settled no later than the 28th of July 2018. However, as the 28th of July 2018 is a Saturday, the VAT return shall be due on July 29th, 2018.
Delay in submission of VAT Return 201 attracts penalty of AED 1,000/- for the first time and penalty of AED 2,000/- for the second time .
Delay in settlement of the net due vat attracts penalty of 2% for first six day from due date, 4% till 30th day from due date and 1% for each day after lapse of 30days from the due date up to 300th day or date of settlement whichever is earlier/less.
