Non-UK businesses claiming UK VAT refunds face more perils than in any other EU countryChemical Tax on Electronics — Sweden’s New Excise Duty

Non-UK companies face penalties for errors made on their submissions for VAT refunds to the UK.  The UK tax authority (“HMRC”) take a much stricter line than most, if not all, other EU countries when it comes to errors and false submissions by non-established companies.  With the deadline approaching for EU company claims (30th September) and non-EU company claims (31st December), it’s time to have a quick check of your UK VAT claim to make sure you don’t fall foul of HMRC’s penalty regime. 
Mairéad Warren de Búrca of Alvarez and Marsal Taxand UK LLP explores the unusual circumstance of HMRC taking the strictest approach in the EU to non-resident VAT claimants.

Switzerland lowers VAT rates as of January 1, 2018

A public vote on a wide-ranging overhaul of Switzerland’s old-age pension scheme was rejected this Sunday. A side effect of this negative vote is that the current VAT rates will be reduced as of January 1, 2018. Given the relatively short notice of the change, companies are well advised to adapt their ERP systems to be ready for the new rates. The standard rate will be reduced by 0.3% to 7.7% , the rate for accommodation services by 0.1% to 3.7%, while the reduced rate of 2.5% will remain unchanged.
