  2. Without prejudice to the provisions of Clause 1 of this Article, a taxable person deriving revenue that does not exceed AED 50,000,000 (fifty million United Arab Emirates dirhams) may apply International Financial Reporting Standards for small and medium-sized entities (“IFRS for SMEs”).
  3. For the purposes of paragraph (a) of Clause (5) of Article (20) of the Corporate Tax Law, a person may prepare financial statements using the cash basis of accounting in any of the following instances:
  4. Where the person derives revenue that does not exceed AED 3,000,000 (three million United Arab Emirates dirhams).
  5. In exceptional circumstances and pursuant to an application submitted by the person to the authority

A complete set of statements as specified under the Accounting Standards applied by the Taxable Person, which includes, but is not limited to, a statement of income, a statement of other comprehensive income, a balance sheet, a statement of changes in equity, and a cash flow statement.
