However, wherever you lack, We got you!

Managing VAT laws and regulations would pose an ongoing challenge for businesses. Additional VAT factors can come into the picture with changes in business scenarios such as the introduction of new services, the addition of new transactions to your business, or improvements to your supply chain structure. Both situations will require guidance and support from a business perspective, considering the VAT impact as well.

Furthermore, the new changes in the tax systems have increased the need to maintain a proper record of financial matters to pay tax on time.

Some Of The Common Errors

1. Lack of proper interpretation of VAT legislation

Many businesses have failed to correctly understand VAT regulations relating to the deduction of input tax. This has contributed to errors such as:

  • Input VAT being claimed against exempt supplies
  • Input VAT being claimed on entertainment and non-business expenses
  • Incorrect recovery input VAT on capital assets
  • Deduction of import VAT paid on behalf of other businesses

2. Late Registration Leading To Penalties

Though registration of VAT was made compulsory for businesses exceeding the threshold, it can be challenging to comply with all the VAT regulations as it could be complex to understand without the right knowledge and support. The inability to overcome VAT legislation has slowed the process of registering VAT for many businesses. Those businesses that were missed or failed to complete their VAT registration on time had to pay penalties.

3. VAT On Non-Compliant Invoices

There may be instances where an invoice contains an error, for example:

  • If tax is incorrectly charged (For ex: tax was charged but no tax was due on the supply); or
  • The wrong amount of tax was charged

Failure by an entity to issue a Tax Invoice or an alternative document when making a supply leads to significant penalties being issued.

4. Irregular Filing of VAT Returns

Companies are expected to file VAT returns by the date set by the Federal Tax Authority, which is a minimum of 28 days after the end of the reporting quarter to prepare and file VAT return. Many businesses either failed to file the tax returns entirely or they filed it extremely late.
