If there is deliberate effort of non payment of vat, the tax liability can go upto 5 times of vat not paid ,or imprisonment or both.

No, I don't think so. Missing a tax payment could result in fines. It is preferable to speak with a tax specialist.

According to the Federal Tax Authority (FTA) in UAE, failure to pay VAT on time will result in a fine of AED 20,000 ($5,445) for the first offense. If the same offense is repeated within 24 months, the fine will be doubled to AED 40,000 ($10,890). In addition to this, there may be other penalties such as imprisonment or seizure of goods.

If the person does not get registered for VAT, they will get punished or fined under the VAT act in UAE.
