VAT & OTHER INDIRECT TAXES

VAT regulations are complex and often difficult to apply. Short accounting periods quickly cause minor errors to have major implications. Changes in business models or business partnerships often have consequences. Svalner has a VAT department with broad expertise and long experience in most sectors. Good VAT advice demands knowledge of the industry, since it is necessary to understand the market in which the customer operates. We help your business to navigate and meet its obligations in the field of VAT and other indirect taxes (including advertising tax, alcohol tax and energy taxes). We can assist you with:

• Advice on transactions and restructuring
• Mapping and analysis of flows of goods and services
