All legal entities are encouraged to determine their upcoming ESR filing obligations as soon as possible for any completed FYs and take necessary steps to ensure filings are made within the applicable deadlines and all necessary supporting documentation is available at the time of the filing. 

Penalties for noncompliance with the ESR include financial penalties for the failure to submit a notification (AED 20,000), submit a report (AED 50,000), provide accurate or complete information (AED 50,000), and demonstrate sufficient economic substance in the UAE (first failure is AED 50,000 and second consecutive instance of failure is AED 400,000). Nonfinancial penalties include information exchanges with certain foreign authorities. The Federal Tax Authority (FTA) has begun to initiate audits.
