International indirect tax compliance and outsourcing
Dealing with Pan-European VAT compliance effectively is a real challenge for many clients with international reach. The European VAT model often leads to liability and extra costs for a business that has no base and therefore no resources or knowledge needed to meet the challenges of complying with local VAT law. From VAT returns and EC Sales Lists to statistical declarations such as Intrastat, the scope for error is considerable and penalties can be substantial.
To assist our clients in dealing with the intricacies of indirect tax, our Deloitte Global Tax Centre (Europe) based in Brussels proposes the services of a multi-disciplinary team of over 150 specialists (lawyers, economists, accountants, IT-specialist, project managers) drawn from all over Europe (16 nationalities mastering over 20 languages), who are highly experienced in assisting companies with multi-jurisdiction VAT-compliance, dealing with the complexities of local regulations and procedures – such as communicating with local tax authorities, setting up new VAT registrations and filling Intrastat and EC Sales returns.
All the work will be centralised from Deloitte’s Global Tax Centre and delivered at a fixed fee. Our professionals will team up with your VAT or finance group to achieve the best practice in review, submission, and management reporting.
