VAT and other indirect taxes



Value added tax (VAT) and other indirect taxes can impact almost every transaction while doing business overseas and presents a key factor in a business cash flow as well as potentially a real bottom-line cost. As many businesses act globally and perform cross-border transactions with delivery of goods or supplies of services there is an increasing interest to be VAT compliant in a foreign country and to get information of the VAT treatment during business case planning.

Due to the current VAT rate of 21 percent in Lithuania and a potential interest risk of 10 percent p.a. and late-filing penalties etc. mistakes in the area of VAT lead to a definitive charge.
