2nd Annual VAT Management Summit

2nd Annual VAT Management Summit

6-7 June 2019

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Summary

The Business environment is very sophisticated and requires different approaches to business indirect tax advice. Constant technological developments, changes in tax regulations and globalization of the economy make VAT rules too complex and inconvenient. Lack of knowledge and pressure to increase the revenue of the company usually lead to fraud issues. VAT fraud is estimated as one of the most serious international crime—the annual estimated amount is €50 billion annually in the EU (European Commission, 2018).

VAT Management forum provides an opportunity to discuss the latest VAT issues with a team of international experts and think about possible improvements. It is a chance to redesign operations and capitalize on potential indirect tax savings. The participants will be informed about the most recent developments in legislation and jurisprudence in the field. This event brings together best VAT experts all in one location.
