FTA Accredited Accounting Software in the UAE

October 25, 2022Dated:  | | Uncategorized |

Now it is high time that every business has to be cautious while choosing its accounting software. It is not “just software“, it is “the accounting software“. As common people, we feel all the same but in technicality, each software has its own pros and cons. Accounting software has a major impact on business growth and development.

The Federal Tax Authority (FTA) of UAE plays a major role in regulating and monitoring accounting and taxation. FTA has approved certain accounting software out of the huge bunch available in the market. This means that all accounting software in the UAE market is NOT accredited by the FTA.

By now, we would have got the point!

YES, we need FTA-accredited software that is VAT enabled to track your business activity and make sure that we avoid the FTA fines and penalties.
