Once the registration form is approved by the FTA, if there are any changes in the details submitted while applying for registration, these need to be immediately reported and modified by the taxpayers. If there are any changes or additions related to Business Activities, GCC Activities, and Customs Registration Information, they can easily be done online by logging into the FTA portal. These changes do not require an approval from the FTA and you can do it by editing the details previously submitted.
