The global shift from direct towards indirect taxation continues, with governments still relying on such levies for a large share of revenues.
The focus on indirect taxation continues and the European Commission is presenting a VAT Action Plan on April 7, which it describes as the "first step towards a single VAT area which is equipped to tackle fraud, to support business and help the digital economy and e-commerce".
The changes, which the Commission has said will make VAT in the EU "simpler, more fraud-proof and more business-friendly", will mean taxpayers need to enlist the services of the best indirect tax advisers available. This will ensure that businesses are able to adapt to the changes in the most efficient manner.
And with impending implementation - even if implementation has been 'impending' in countries like India for a number of years, now, only to be kicked down the road year-after-year - in new jurisdictions around the world, indirect tax compliance will remain a focus for multinationals.
For the fifth year running, International Tax Review is compiling a guide to the world’s leading indirect tax advisers to help clients grappling with changing legislation, new taxes and increasingly complex indirect tax challenges. We invite you to take part in the research process.
Inclusion in Indirect Tax Leaders will be based on a minimum number of nominations received from peers and clients, along with evidence of outstanding success in the last year. Firms and individuals cannot pay to be recommended in the guide.
To take part in the research process and ensure your firm is considered for the guide, please complete the attached form.
You may nominate indirect tax advisers from your own firm providing you also nominate advisers from another firm.
When nominating advisers, please consider the following:
- Technical ability;
- Achievement of client objectives;
- Seniority in own organisation;
- Leadership in policy development with government; and
- Profile in representative associations.
