Value Added Tax (“VAT”) is collected by businesses from their customers and settled by businesses with governments, making it an easy, efficient and popular revenue generator for governments globally. For businesses, however, VAT may be complex due to a vast set of rules, exceptions, and interpretation differences between countries. For businesses, there is a high cost of doing it wrong.
