The challenge of reclaiming local VAT

We work with major global enterprises, and as a first step we complete Domestic VAT Health Checks for companies who are either using a competitor or filing themselves.

Our insights have found that 60% of companies are not making full or correct Domestic VAT submissions.

Four consistent causes emerged:

  • VAT was deducted but not valid, therefore non-compliant with Tax Office laws
  • VAT was incorrectly deducted and thus ineligible, resulting in companies reclaiming a high amount of ineligible VAT
  • VAT that was eligible, was not deducted resulting in a loss in the reclaim for the company
  • All smaller expenses were missed as they were regarded as too difficult to reclaim on or the company didn’t have enough resources to manage the high amount of these small transactions
