VAT Fundamentals for U.S. Companies Buying or Selling in the European Union

Ensuring VAT Compliance on Goods and Services Transactions

A live 110-minute CPE webinar with interactive Q&A


Thursday, July 6, 2017 (in 10 days)
1:00pm-2:50pm EDT, 10:00am-11:50am PDT


This webinar will give U.S. transactional tax specialists a grounding in the most relevant aspects of European value-added tax (VAT).

Description

As U.S. companies expand, the odds increase that their transactional tax professionals and advisers will need to be aware of the basic components of compliance aspects of VAT, particularly in the European Union.

Solid grounding in VAT fundamentals (e.g., necessary paperwork and implications of exemptions such as for exports to non-EU member countries) serves U.S. tax professionals well. Awareness of latest actions, such as country rate changes and the place-of-supply rules (S.I. No. 520 of 2009) is also crucial.

Listen as our panel of seasoned transactional tax advisers explores fundamental concepts you need to help steer your company to proper VAT compliance.

Outline

  1. Basics of the European VAT tax base
  2. VAT compliance issues for U.S. taxpayers
  3. Exemptions and reclaiming VAT
  4. Latest regulatory and ratemaking developments with VAT

Benefits

The panel will address these and other VAT basics:

  • VAT applicability: whether companies need to register for it, reclaiming it and applicable exemptions
  • VAT compliance: necessary paperwork on transactions
  • VAT rules: key changes, e.g., the place-of-supply rules for services

Learning Objectives

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Identify basics of VAT as applied particularly to U.S. companies buying and selling goods and services in the EU
  • Recognize documentation requirements for claiming exemptions on exports of goods to non-EU member countries
