Every purchaser and supplier of goods or services has to deal with value added tax (VAT). VAT on the regular purchase and sale of goods and services generally runs smoothly and does not require extensive expert advice. This is not the case, however, when one of the numerous extraordinary and exceptional situations provided for in VAT legislation arises. It is these situations that often trigger VAT audits.
