As governments around the world look to raise additional revenues to plug shortfalls, many governments have shifted away from corporate, income, and payroll taxes. Instead, they’re raising revenue through ‘indirect taxes’, such as value added tax (VAT), goods and services tax (GST), sales and local taxes, customs and excise duties, and so on. Proof of this trend can be seen with the introduction of GST in Malaysia in 2015, as well as the planned introduction of GST in India in 2017 and VAT in the Gulf States.
The introduction of new indirect tax regimes and changes to existing regimes can create significant challenges for most business. Though certain indirect taxes are not a bottom line cost for many clients, the compliance requirements can be complex and there can be an impact on cash flow.
