Managing obligations and maximize efficiency in the U.S. and global marketplace
An indirect tax is collected by one entity in the supply chain and paid to the government by the retailer. The expense is passed on to the consumer as part of the purchase price. Indirect taxes generate significant revenue for the state or country that imposes the tax. Although indirect tax is common in the United States and throughout the global economy, it is complicated and many businesses are not getting it right.
Thousands of state and local taxing jurisdictions in the United States complicates any company’s sales and use tax compliance. When compounded with global growth and sales, the addition of value added tax (VAT) and goods and services tax (GST), companies are exposed to significant risk.
Proper indirect tax planning is a vital component of a businesses’ financial and operational strategy. Growing into new markets, expanding product lines and many other common business activities that generate profits often increase your indirect tax exposure.
