Likely yes, but depends. Most Dubai businesses require audits by law. Exceptions exist for some free zones, but the rules might change with corporate tax. I will talk to my accountant to confirm.

For other business types, while it may not be mandatory, conducting regular audits can provide significant benefits and enhance the financial integrity of your business. Consulting with a local accounting firm or professional advisor can help you determine the specific requirements and best practices for your business.

For a small business, it is also important to have a handle on the numbers and to make smart financial steps . Though doing numbers yourself sometimes end up in penalties. So, in some cases, it is a better decision to get the help of auditors and accountants in more complex financials.
