INDIRECT TAX COMPLIANCE
Companies engaged in international trade must ensure the
compliance of their operations in respect of a variety of taxes
according to a variety of national laws. European and
non-European Value Added Taxes, Sales and Use taxes,
Environmental taxes and Withholding taxes, require specific
know-how in order to ensure their correct application and management.
When operating abroad, companies can be liable to pay taxes in
countries where they are not established. These taxes can often
be recoverable provided that the relevant refund procedure is correctly
followed. In particular, VAT paid by foreign companies is
refundable in the EU and in a number of other countries.
It is often beneficial for companies to carry out an audit of their VAT
management of national and international transactions.The benefits
of doing so can be far-reaching, from obtaining savings for
unrecovered tax to covering risks for non-compliant operations and
ensuring that the VAT treatment of all their purchases, sales and
physical flows of goods is in line with applicable legislations.
Entities who carry out exempt transactions not liable to VAT,
such as institutions supplying financial services or services related to healthcare or education,
municipalities, etc., usually do not recover all the VAT that they are indeed entitled to.
