Indirect Taxes

In control of your indirect taxes

Changes in EU regulations concerning VAT have a direct impact on your national and cross-border transactions. In addition, changes in e.g. supervision-related rules for your sector affect your VAT position. And if you transform your organisation or business, this also has implications for your indirect taxes. How can you remain compliant in these changing circumstances?
