UAE VAT Updates – New Guide on linking TRN with CRN
The UAE Federal Tax Authority (FTA) recently released a guide on linking the Tax Registration Number (TRN) with the Customs Registration Number (CRN).
The guide provides the below two options for linking TRN with CRN.
VAT registrants can update CRN in its profile on the FTA’s e-service portal. Multiple CRNs can be provided by selecting the Edit option and adding the details.
The second option is to link TRN with CRN through the customs department office. The process would include the following steps:
- Provide TRN to the customs department office
- The customs department officer will verify the TRN on the e-Services portal or the FTA website by using the TRN verification feature.
- On verification of the TRN ownership, the customs department office would then update the TRN on its system.
