Threshold 2880x1400 scaled

Constant technological developments, changes in tax regulations and lack of VAT harmonization and simplification make VAT rules too complex and inconvenient. Every day VAT experts have to deal with challenges coming from regulations: quick fixes, implementation of new VAT e-commerce rules, raised concerns from E-invoicing rules and changes in economic situation affecting action incentives. Lack of knowledge and experience leads to revenue losses and fraud issues.

Nobody knows how to combat the defects of the current VAT system, but VAT Management Summit provides an opportunity to discuss the latest VAT issues with a team of international experts and think about possible improvements and apply VAT management methods succeeded in leading companies. 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 the best VAT experts all in one location.
