Value Added Tax

Comprehensive advice on national and international VAT law
Minimising VAT risks

VAT has become a significant risk in tax audits. More than any other, this kind of tax is subject to strict formalities. Non-compliance with these formalities often leads to discussions with the tax authorities and even to the denial of VAT exemption or input VAT deduction. PSP has many years of expertise in the field of German and European VAT law. This enables us to mitigate your VAT risks and identify significant savings possibilities.
