International VAT

With both VAT and Goods and Services Tax (GST) becoming increasingly popular around the globe, it is more critical than ever that the indirect tax consequences of international trade are understood. Our experienced VAT team have significant experience of advising on international matters and, with access to affiliate firms within the Crowe Global and TIAG networks, the knowledge and resource available to us globally is extensive.

Even within the EU, there are significant differences in how VAT is operated; expanding outwith the EU brings a range of additional complications including:

  • VAT/GST registrations;
  • VAT/GST representatives;
  • VAT/GST withholding;
  • Access to VAT refunds

Should you be planning a multi-jurisdictional activity, our team's strong project management skills can help co-ordinate advice from all the countries involved to help you identify the key issues and risks you will need to address to help ensure compliance.
