Indirect Taxes

Getting ahead of the indirect tax challenge

Overview

Managing indirect taxes requires a strategic and comprehensive approach. Value Added Tax (“VAT”) and other indirect taxes are becoming a bigger focus for companies today due to cost of compliance, shared service center, centralisation of business processing (and reporting), cost reduction initiatives and increased tax authority audit and scrutiny. PwC has the team, the tools and the multi-disciplinary approach to deliver the solutions you need today, and face the indirect tax challenges of tomorrow.

Digital businesses and ecommerce are taxed increasingly all around the world based on the place of consumption.
