VAT & Customs

The management of Value Added Tax (VAT) and customs is constantly evolving, influenced by various factors including regulatory changes, technological advancements, and global economic dynamics. The rise in international trade and the complexity of commercial transactions have led to a growing need for specialized legal assistance in VAT and customs matters. The presence of new market players, such as digital businesses and online market operators, has further complicated the regulatory landscape and increased the demand for specialized consultancy to ensure compliance and optimize operational efficiency.

At WST, we have a specialised expertise in indirect taxes – VAT, customs duties, excise duties, registration tax, taxes on allowances and other taxes. This combined with our well-established knowledge of industrial sectors and cutting edge professional skills means we can assist clients in all areas of indirect tax.

The VAT & Customs team adopts an international approach to indirect tax and analyses both domestic laws and practice and international principles: EU directives, EU regulations, Court of Justice rulings, to provide clients with a total picture of the implications. 

We provide solutions that optimise the planning and management of cash flow connected to the handling of goods and provision of services at national and international level whilst ensuring compliance.
