If you, as a natural person, legal entity or in a partnership, independently supply goods or services against consideration, you are liable to pay VAT as an VAT business. In principle, you then have to charge your customers VAT on the amounts they pay you. In addition, various administrative obligations will then apply, such as issuing invoices, submitting VAT returns and related filings periodically and keeping VAT records.

VAT laws and regulations are complex, and if you fail to follow them closely as a business, fines and/or assessments are a real possibility. That said, VAT also presents opportunities, provided you know and apply the rights you have as a VAT business. If you would like to know more about your VAT position and the rights and obligations applicable to VAT businesses, feel free to contact us for a consultation
