Hello there, Aoun Ali. 


Yes, you're correct the VAT calculation is unavailable in the US version of QuickBook Desktop. You can manually calculate the tax and manually file the return outside QuickBooks. On the other hand, QuickBooks Desktop for United Kingdom version supports VAT, you might want to check it through these articles: 

The Community is available 24/7. You can get in touch with us if you need anything else. Take care!

As rightly pointed out, QuickBooks UK version is VAT compatible and is currently used by a lot of customers in the UAE. We can setup FTA and related tax types like Standard Rated 5%, Zero Rated 0%, Reverse Charge etc.
