Global VAT compliance

Complying with indirect tax obligations across multiple geographies can be hugely time consuming and can carry a high risk of missing deadlines, with the associated risks of penalties and interest.

Our centralised, UK-based VAT compliance team delivers VAT related and other returns across Europe and beyond, using a combination of experienced professionals, standardised process and our i-VAT technology tool.

RSM’s service offers a model that:

  • delivers control and visibility over global obligations;
  • manages the risk inherent with multiple compliance obligations;
  • tests the quality of transactional data from before and during preparation of your returns; and
  • offers insight into best practice and business improvement strategies, both centrally and in conjunction with our global RSM network.

You will have a single point of contact for your global VAT compliance. What's more, our team is primarily staffed with former in-house VAT specialists who can not only answer your questions but who will also spot opportunities for streamlining processes and rectifying any incorrect VAT treatment of day-to-day business transactions. Our aim is to be your indirect tax partner, not a remote commodity partner.

We will track progress with European VAT and other indirect tax returns through our co-located Project Management Office, giving a complete overview at a glance of VAT filing status and milestones.
