Value added tax (VAT) is creating increasing challenges to businesses.

Global and domestic businesses are increasingly led to manage and mitigate the impact VAT can have in terms of cash availability and administrative burden. The KPMG network of VAT experts is not only devoted to provide you with progressive and “tailor-made” VAT approach but also to handle with the “day-to-day” implementation of those VAT approach through a close and strong relationship building, and as well as an accurate understanding of your
business methods.

Indirect taxes - such as value added taxes, sales taxes, custom duties and excise - can represent up to a third of a company’s annual turnover. The magnitude of these tax collections is rarely highlighted in annual reports. Yet indirect tax raises significant risks for all businesses. Poor indirect tax management can squeeze cash flow, allow the over or underpayment of tax and attract penalties for non-compliance.
