Value-Added Tax

Stay compliant with the ever-changing VAT regulations

At a glance

Stay in control of your indirect tax compliance.

Selling goods and services overseas can require the charging, filing and remitting of consumption taxes called value-added taxes (VAT) or general services taxes (GST). Imposed in over 150 countries, VAT impacts many U.S. businesses that handle multinational transactions overseas.

Sellers must manage a country-by-country variance in B2B, B2C and D2C applicability with dependence on many factors including sales thresholds, reverse-charge mechanisms, exemptions and residency.

As tax authorities consistently introduce updated reporting rules, organizations must work harder to stay compliant with the new changes.

Our team maneuvers through global transactions seamlessly and provides solutions-driven results to ensure your business stays compliant — giving you more time to reach your full potential and map out goals for the future.

Let the Baker Tilly global network assist with the multifaceted requirements, while having a local representative manage the compliance.
