Indirect International Tax Advisory

Indirect International Tax Advisory

Most countries around the globe levy indirect taxes, with the most common being Value Added Tax (VAT) and Goods and Services Tax (GST). Like Sales Tax in the US, these levy taxes on consumption. But unlike US Sales Tax, Indirect Tax is levied on the supply of a product or service at each stage in the supply chain.

Understanding and complying with Indirect Taxation – including the application of any deductions and addressing cross-border transactions – can be extremely burdensome for businesses and not-for-profits that are unfamiliar with any given country’s unique tax scheme or arrangements.
Indirect Taxes make up an increasingly large portion of the overall tax revenues in countries around the world. As a result, tax authorities are particularly active in enforcing VAT and GST compliance. Failure to identify indirect tax obligations in supply chains and operating models can give rise to significant financial and administrative burdens.
