With the move to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) for many of the world's public companies and the far-reaching mandates of Sarbanes-Oxley, financial accounting has become a lot more complicated. And if the past few years are any guide, the future holds more regulations, new requirements, and an increasing compliance burden. As business becomes more global, with new markets opening up seemingly every day, a company’s financial accounting must meet global standards.
What is VAT?
Value Added Tax (VAT) is an indirect tax levied on the supply of goods and services that can add between 5 - 25% to your organisation’s foreign business expenses. It is levied at every stage in the business cycle, itemised on the invoice and paid to the government in each state with the cost ultimately borne by the end consumer. VAT was established to encourage cross-border trade from one county to another, and was designed to be neutral to businesses if they go through the effort recover their foreign VAT.

Why business tax efficiency matters
Tax is a component of shareholder value and so is not just the concern of the tax department. A company’s combined direct and indirect tax burden can represent a huge sum, while there can be significant penalties in failing to get the compliance process right. Tax therefore plays a key role in protecting and enhancing shareholder value. It can make or break an acquisition, an investment or virtually any kind of corporate activity that involves spending – or receiving – money.
