VAT is a general tax that applies, in principle, to all commercial activities involving the production and distribution of goods and the provision of services. Since it is charged as a percentage of price, any limitation in the possibility to deduct input VAT can create a substantial additional cost for the business.
Such limitation might arise when VAT exemptions apply, such as for holding and financing activities. Fortunately, some alternatives already exist to soften the burden of non-deductible VAT and manage VAT in transactions between related parties.
- VAT Grouping
- Cost-sharing arrangements within groups
- TOGC (Transfer of Going Concern) exemption
- VAT exemptions and their consequences
- Holding and financing activities that might affect input VAT deductibility
