VAT and 3-Party Transactions

VAT and 3-Party Transactions

17 October 2017

VAT can get very complicated when there are three parties involved in a transaction.

The key is to understand which role each party plays - principal, agent or customer.  If the roles are confused, the wrong person may reclaim the VAT or the VAT liability may be missed by all parties, resulting in potential penalties and interest on late paid VAT when the error is discovered.
