For free advice on global VAT GST registrations, compliance, returns and Intrastat VATLive is the leading online resource. It is the industry’s free online information service for companies and professionals looking to understand the complexities of the international Value Added Tax and Goods & Service Tax universe.
Its aims are simple: to provide the best and most up-to-date free insights into the processes of complying with the VAT Directives and laws in the EU, Europe and globally. This includes details on where VAT or GST registrations may be required, how to go through the process and what is needed to remain compliant (VAT and GST returns, Intrastat or other filings). In particular, how the rules and requirements vary from country-to-country, and for specific industries.
VATLive is a co-operative between in-house professionals and external advisers. We do not provide any tax advice or charge for any service. We were formed in 2009, and this is the third version of our online service (previously World VAT Guide Online).
All the information you find on this site is provided by our many Contributors around the world who write original content and edit each others work for submission. If you would like to add to the site, or become a regular contributor, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We have many Contributors from Western and Central Europe, but need help with Eastern Europe, South America and Asia Pac. Even if you think we have something wrong, please drop us a line.
In the longer term, we have plans to provide other, related services, including online tuition, and video interviews with leading lights from the industry.
