VAT

Does the subject of VAT make you all hot under the collar? Value Added Tax (VAT) is a complicated and dynamic tax regime and often presents a serious challenge for businesses. In principle, VAT is neutral to businesses as it is a tax on the consumer. However, in certain circumstances, there is the possibility that the business is seen as the end consumer. Determining the correct VAT treatment of a particular transaction and understanding the local procedures involved are essential to ensure that a company meets its tax compliance obligations.
