Indirect Taxes: VAT & Customs

Getting ahead of the indirect tax challenge

Indirect taxes - including VAT, Goods and Services Tax (GST), sales tax, customs and excise duties - are becoming more prominent and challenging globally. 

Governments are increasingly looking at Indirect taxes as a revenue source and at how reporting and collection can be modernized. In this regard, real-time reporting and e-invoicing are high on the agenda to improve compliance and reduce fraud.

International trade and e-commerce have completely changed how companies and customers are doing business nowadays, with physical and online worlds being highly interconnected. The Covid-19 pandemic appears to be accelerating this process, with companies looking, for instance, into opening up new direct-to-consumer sales channels and creating flexibility in their business and distribution models. These global trends and developments are making indirect taxes particularly relevant for all cross-border businesses, with the result that businesses will have greater responsibility for indirect tax governance.

With tax authorities digitizing compliance and using technology to sharpen their focus and audit interventions, it is more important now than ever to ensure that your indirect tax processes and data are up-to-date and reliable. PwC’s Swiss Indirect Tax Team can guide your company through these global trends and challenges!
