Value Added Tax, or VAT, is a tax charged on most business-to-business and business-to-consumer transactions in all the countries of the European Union and in a growing number of other countries. The laws establishing the VAT are national laws. In the EU the national laws are framed within certain parameters specified by the EU in Council Directive 2006/112 on the common system of value added tax.

The complexity of VAT legislation is a growing concern for businesses. Management of VAT and other indirect taxes is a key issue, especially for companies involved in international trade.

Our specialists help you to maximize savings in finding an optimal VAT position for current or planned business activities. They can assist you with VAT planning and compliance, VAT scans and with local and international advice.
