Challenges of registering, filing, and settling tax globally

by Vertex

Registering for, and managing VAT, GST or sales tax in your own country is normally a relatively straightforward process. You speak the language, you know who the tax authority is, and you know where to find the information you need. But what happens when you need to start working with an overseas jurisdiction to settle the tax on your digital sales or other taxable transactions
in that jurisdiction? From the moment you register in a tax jurisdiction, you enter their compliance
regime. Yet the accessibility, quality and quantity of guidance you receive both before and after you register differs widely – and you certainly can’t rely on simply finding the information you need online.
On registering, you might get a comprehensive manual running to hundreds of pages – do you have the resources to read, digest and act on the information for every country concerned? On the other hand, you might get very little information, and be expected to figure things out for yourself or consult with a
local tax advisor.

This guide will help you navigate the practical considerations for registering, filing and settling indirect tax in tax jurisdictions globally.
