You must plan out your VAT well, as it is now a large part of the tax system globally.

There has been a global shift in taxation to VAT and other indirect taxes over recent years, most especially by EU countries to stabilise their tax base.

In recent years, there has been a global shift in taxation to VAT and other indirect taxes, most notably by EU countries seeking to stabilize their tax base.

Not least because of the increased attention paid by tax authorities at both the national and international levels, VAT and indirect taxes have grown in importance for multinational corporations in particular. Increasing complexity, primarily due to the constant change in jurisdiction and legislation, as well as a partial lack of harmonization across EU member states, make it more difficult not only to correctly assess any special issues for indirect tax purposes but also to fulfil global VAT and indirect tax obligations.

 Furthermore, it is also clear that the COVID-19 crisis had an impact on the sourcing of businesses with a variety of VAT and indirect tax issues.

With companies facing harsh penalties for noncompliance, such as personal fines for company executives, VAT and indirect taxes have risen to the top of the corporate priority list.
