What adjustments are needed to the company accounting system to deal with VATs? How should U.S. companies deal with the potential for delayed VAT refunds? What about VAT issues with warranty services and drop shipments? How can other company departments be engaged to anticipate VAT problems?
Given the proliferation of VAT systems worldwide (not just in the European Union but also Canada, Mexico and China, to name a few), tax professionals need to take a comprehensive, global approach to solving the higher-level compliance and administrative issues that result for U.S. companies.
