VAT & International Course

Apply international VAT rules optimally

Does your company do business abroad? As an international entrepreneur, you have to deal with different VAT rules than when you only do business in the Netherlands. Do you supply goods or services? To private individuals or other entrepreneurs? Within or outside Europe? These factors determine which VAT rate and which laws and regulations apply to your international business activities.

Even if you buy goods or services abroad yourself, different VAT rules apply. Do you want to know exactly what the VAT on intra-Community deliveries, imports and exports is? And how to optimally apply international VAT regulations and exemptions? In the two-day VAT & International course, you learn everything about VAT abroad.


Based on examples from your daily practice, you will learn all about VAT and doing business abroad in one afternoon. How to calculate VAT. Which VAT percentage and which regulations apply to your goods or services. Which conditions your international invoices and administration must meet. And how you should declare VAT on your international transactions. You will also be updated on current developments in the legislation and regulations in the field of intra-Community supplies and acquisitions.
