Indirect Taxes

Indirect tax covers a variety of taxes such as VAT, customs and excise duties, insurance premium taxes, environmental taxes, gaming duties and stamp duty. These taxes are ruled by complex regulations and are often changing.

VAT is a transaction based tax and is levied on supplies of goods and services. Globally, approximately 136 countries operate some form of VAT or GST and there are considerable differences on how this taxation is applied from country to country

An ever increasing focus on tax compliance and structuring in the Isle of Man reinforces the need for structuring to be both technically robust and properly implemented.

As economies and tax systems continue to become more global and complex, getting it right and minimizing risk are as crucial as ever.
