VAT Advice

EU VAT is changing at a greater pace than ever before – VAT rates are changing, the VAT treatment of certain categories of goods and services are being re-classified and there are VAT rule changes to respond to developments in global business and how goods and services are delivered to customers.

So, continual changes to EU VAT systems coupled with fast-pace international business development requires companies to overcome substantial challenges in order to be VAT compliant.

Through a professional VAT Advice, we help businesses manage their international VAT issues by being an extension of the existing in-house finance or tax team so that you can be sure you are receiving the best possible VAT advice and support.

Given our EU-wide VAT expertise and experience, we understand that businesses require proper guidance in making choices concerning their international VAT obligations.

  • Reviewing VAT implications of business expansion in the EU
  • Determination of the VAT treatment of sales made to customers
  • Strategic supply chain analysis from all angles and stages for businesses
  • Identifying VAT risk areas and potential VAT inefficiencies
