PwC's VAT Online Helpful to Tax Professionals
A new service from PricewaterhouseCoopers offers detailed information on the VAT, or Value Added Tax, along with news feeds on the latest developments in the VAT arena.
This site is helpful to finance directors and tax preparers/professionals who are seeking more information on how the VAT is affected on a day-to-day basis across the world. Known as GlobalVatOnline has information on VAT rules and rates in more than 70 countries.
"GlobalVatOnLine is an on-line repository of information and news about VAT and how to manage it. Our aim was to collect key VAT data from around the world and present it in one place in an easily accessible manner," says Mark Friedlich, COO of the service. "We believe it will become an essential tool for companies trading overseas who have to contend with increasingly complex VAT regimes."
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
