Services 

KPMG's VAT team offers advice on all issues relating to indirect taxation throughout the entire process of controlling, monitoring, process optimization, risk management and documentation. Furthermore, we have developed a modular service tool system based on our most popular services to address our clients' requirements, which differ significantly depending on the type and size of the organization. The modules are designed to be used either in various combinations for large corporations or as stand-alone solutions for small- to medium-sized businesses:

  • VAT Workshop

Half-day position seminar at the beginning of our collaboration. We get to know how your company works and determine how we can support you. You get to know how we will proceed as a team, which areas of your company need to make changes and what steps we recommend that you take.

 

  • VAT Manual

We create VAT manuals for your company or revise existing manuals and/or instructions and adapt them to accommodate your current requirements and any changes in basic conditions.

 

  • VAT Advising

The classic start of a client relationship. Once we have established your requirements during a workshop we turn our attention to detail issues, analyze the exact situation and develop possible approaches and measures for the next steps.

 

  • VAT Training

In many cases employees require training with regard to new processes that are introduced due to changes in tax laws or their practical application. This currently applies in particular to the new VAT law. We also offer employee training measures in isolation from and independent of existing customer relations at very favourable conditions. The expenses incurred are relatively low, yet the effect is huge; that is why employee training is a very popular measure that will soon pay off for your company.

 

  • VAT Health Check

Do you have an accurate assessment of how your organization currently manages VAT? A Health Check will bring clarify the status and present additional options to achieve savings, reduce risks and improve processes. We generally apply this holistic analysis to the entire company. Our extensive experience enables us to identify problem areas and draw the right conclusions reliably, which helps put you in the strongest possible position with regard to VAT management.
