Businesses now face complex VAT systems, case law, guidance and legislation. Companies need to comply with VAT rules when entering new markets, stretching out globally or joining international supply chains.

Grant Thornton’s tax teams take a rigorous approach to helping you meet these obligations, whatever challenges you may face along the way. Using our finely tuned local knowledge, our teams can help you understand and comply with often complex and time-consuming regulations.

You may need to pay particular attention to indirect taxes if you’re doing business in an area that already has high rates of these taxes. On a global level, rates of indirect taxes are on the increase in countries that already impose these taxes. Countries without a zero base rate may also see indirect taxes as a means of raising revenue.
