VAT can have far-reaching business implications. It is more than just a tax; it influences business strategies in all areas - capital expenditure and investment, sales, exports, information systems - and at all stages of a company's internal or external expansion. VAT is therefore a tax discipline in itself and requires specific legal and tax expertise. Companies are expected to act as tax collectors on behalf of the government, making it crucial to review VAT payment and deduction procedures on a regular basis. Our role is to assist and support our clients by providing reliable, high-quality advice.
