How to make your Laundry Business VAT enabled - UAE

The business environment in the United Arab Emirates has recently undergone a huge transformation.
With the introduction of Value Added Tax (VAT) from the very starting of 2018, most of the business
owners had to bring some changes into their style of working. We are here to make your journey through
VAT smoother.

Here is everything you need to know to implement VAT in your Laundry or Dry Cleaning Business.

  • Is it necessary for you to implement VAT?
First off you would have to determine if your business falls under the compulsory VAT registration category or not.
A business must register for VAT if their taxable supplies and imports exceed the mandatory registration threshold of AED 375,000. Although if your business does not fall into the above category but if your taxable supplies and imports exceed AED 187,500, you may voluntarily choose to register under VAT. But it is not necessary.
  • VAT registration
If you do have to register for VAT, you can easily do so by logging on to the FTA’s website.
  • Computation of VAT

From 1st Jan 2018, businesses will start charging VAT from you on every input you purchase for your business. Be it machines, chemicals or other small inputs. Alternatively, you may collect VAT (5%) on the Laundry or Dry Cleaning service from your customers.

If the amount of tax that you collect is more than the amount that you pay in tax, then you have to pay the balance to the government. Although if the amount of tax that you pay is more than what you collect, then you may claim the difference amount from the FTA.

  • VAT payment
    The tax returns have to be filed on the 28th of every month. The return would have to filed online by filling up a form provided by the Federal Tax Authority

Now that you know everything, how are you planning on to take on this humongous task over and above what you already do? 

Don’t worry, Quick Dry Cleaning Software is all set to make your Laundry Business VAT enabled. 

With our VAT compliant automated Accounting, Reporting and Invoicing, making your dry cleaning business and laundry business VAT ready would be no problem at all.
  •      Print VAT enabled invoices in Arabic
  •      Take out monthly VAT compliant reports to make VAT filing a breeze
  •      Automatic computation of VAT makes it super easy for you to become VAT compliant.      

          Here at Quick Dry Cleaning Software, the success of our customers is of the utmost importance

To begin with, let’s do a recap. What is on-demand and how is it useful for your laundry business?

As discussed in the previous blog, On Demand is the new business model created recently to satiate all the needs of the consumers as per their convenience.

So, in a laundry business where traditionally the customer walks in, brings clothes, comes back in later when the clothes are processed and collects them now with on-demand the entire scenario has changed. With reliance on trustworthy technology and a movement towards the new economy, the dry cleaners all over the world are now realizing the importance of On demand dry cleaning business software.

Mr. Mathews lives in Napa County, California and has been successfully running his dry cleaning business for the past ten years. As a traditional business owner, his business was positively smooth until recently.

With the current shift in the economy, where everyone desires maximum comfort and instant gratification of their needs, Mr. Mathews was struggling in competing with threats of other on-demand business models around him. He could witness his customers swaying from him towards other dry cleaning services which offered the convenience of choosing service, time and date according to them.

Mr. Mathews realized that his customers are looking for the convenience of choosing when to order, what to order, at what price and location. With this, he also envisioned that if only he could find a way to expand his business and offer excellent services, then he’d ace in the laundry business.

Why Garment Tagging? Tag along for a smooth Dry Cleaning Business

Say hello to Mr. Levine in the image above. Doesn’t he look annoyed and confused? When asked what’s wrong, he told us about how he spends hours daily manually tagging his loads of laundry. Even then there are times when tags go missing or are wrongly attached leading to utter chaos. But why bother tagging heaps of clothes?

Well, every dry cleaner and laundry business owner understands the importance of tagging. Tags are necessary for:
  • Identification of ownership
  • Reminder of service to be performed
  • Help in sorting garments according to priority of due dates

Well, if that’s how crucial tagging is, then what bothers Mr. Levine?

The plight of many dry cleaners and laundry business owners is the problem of manual tagging. Not only is this process time consuming (every item is picked, a slip is made, necessary information is written and then tagged), but this method is prone to human error as well. The worker might miss a cloth, miss to write vital information on the tag or even the tag itself can go missing. In such cases, the reliability is reduced which later leads to confusion, loss of clothes, wrong deliveries and customer dissatisfaction. The dry cleaner has to bear the brunt and pay compensations.

All in all, a little tag creates such nuisance and shakes up the brand value of your business.

Are you wondering if there’s a way out of it? Well, there definitely is.

Taking into consideration the perplexity of the dry cleaners and laundry business owners, QDC came up with a simplified and automated version of tagging. With a simple key press, the barcodes are automatically generated, and with a simple beep on the scanner, each and every tagged cloth is registered in the system. Now tag each cloth with this electronic tag which already has the vital information required for sorting it. The tags have information of Order number, Due Date and Service to be performed.

No Abracadabra, just technology simplifying your business!

Automated barcode tagging saves time and is safe from human error. Along with this, the QDC software enables garment tracking which in turn makes stock reconciliation easier and eliminates wrong deliveries.

With this said, barcode tagging will lead to:
  • Zero wrong deliveries
  • Zero compensations
  • Happy customers
  • Employee motivation
  • Enhanced customer experience
  • Improved branding

Wasn’t that all you wished to achieve? So, with automated barcode tagging, we have sorted Mr. Levine’s problem.

How automated tagging works:

Now, neither Mr. Levine nor you have to worry over tagging and keeping track of clothes. Just as the new customer walks in, enter their order and garment details only once in the QDC software which prints out the tags with the barcode. Attach the barcode tags with clothes which already have all necessary information and start the processing. Minimize your efforts but maximize your productivity and profits with QDC Software barcode tagging.

If you are ready to embrace this easy yet a must-have tool, then click here for a Free Trial. And for more dry cleaning and laundry business issues and solutions, visit us here. Let’s tag out the errors out of our business together!
