Value Added Tax (VAT)

Tax rates, VAT law and VAT systems differ in each Member State. VAT is a complex area that requires expert advice to ensure that you are maximising the cost effectiveness of your business. It is essential to monitor and manage VAT costs and to ensure that you comply with all the relevant legislation.
