VAT registration guide

 The VAT identification number is a key feature in every VAT system. In the case of intra-Community trade within the EU the VAT number is an essential element to enable the supplier to decide whether or not to charge VAT on his supply. Without a VAT identification number it is impossible for the fraudster to perpetrate VAT fraud!

VAT fraud in the IOTA region leads to severe budget losses and violates the principle of fair taxation, bringing distortions to capital movements and the conditions of competition.

Validation of VAT Refund Claims

During recent years there have been fraud cases where VAT refund claims have been used in the fraud scheme. Unfortunately, the cases are frequently detected by the tax administration after the VAT has been refunded. The general experience from these cases is that it is difficult to recover the losses - the fraud has to be stopped before the VAT is refunded.
