Businesses now face complex VAT systems, case law, guidance and legislation. Companies need to comply with VAT rules when entering new markets, stretching out globally or joining international supply chains. Meanwhile, liabilities, errors and assessments can also attract interest and penalties.

We can manage your overall exposure to indirect taxes, guide you through complex SA VAT legislation, advise on the applicable VAT interpretation notes and/or applicable VAT rulings, and help you with everything from preparing VAT returns to negotiating with authorities. 

But you'll benefit from more than our technical expertise. You'll also gain commercial insights that help you make better financial and business decisions. Whether you're an individual, small business, entrepreneur or multinational corporation, you'll receive the most effective VAT solutions to support your goals. And our close collaboration with other Grant Thornton member firms ensures our services are relevant to your tax affairs, wherever you are in the world.
