Taxback International offers comprehensive VAT Reviews allowing us to perform thorough evaluations into specific aspects of a business’s accounts which impact on VAT compliance. Reviews may be carried out onsite or remotely and are tailored to meet an individual business need.

How it works

The following reviews may help your business to minimize its VAT liability and risk as well as reassuring management and auditors that VAT is being accounted for correctly:

  • VAT Compliance Review
  • VAT Expense Review
  • VAT Expense Code Review
VAT Compliance Review

A VAT Compliance Review involves an examination of transactions recorded through a VAT return to determine if:

  • VAT was over or under claimed
  • The correct VAT rate has been applied
  • Invoices are compliant for VAT purposes
  • VAT has been accounted for correctly on intra-community acquisitions and services subject to the reverse charge mechanism.
VAT Expense Review

VAT legislation allows companies to recover VAT on certain travel and entertainment expenses. This varies on a country-to-country basis. Many companies are unaware of the reclaim process and are failing to recover the VAT that they are entitled to, thereby losing out on potential business savings.

Taxback International can review your businesses VAT recovery on both domestic and foreign travel & entertainment expenses and provide advice on how to maximise VAT recovery opportunities and minimise the risk of over or under claiming VAT.

VAT Expense Code Review

  • That the correct VAT rates are used to calculate the VAT deducted,

  • Assists with accuracy for VAT reporting
