Understanding the Value Added Tax (VAT) rules applicable to international transactions is essential for businesses with cross-border operations. Failure to comply with VAT requirements can result in significant financial penalties and may negatively impact a company's reputation. To help accountants navigate this complex area, Karen Spiteri Bailey and a Kenneth Cremona will be presenting on VAT on International Transactions.

Specific topics to be covered during the session

The attendees will be provided with an overview of VAT rules for cross-border transactions, including place of supply rules and determining the applicable VAT rate. The session will also cover the obligations of a taxable person, the VAT implications of transported goods, VAT compliance requirements, and multiple practical examples and case studies.


The increasing globalization of business activities and the resulting complexity of cross-border transactions make this session highly relevant. Many businesses face challenges in navigating the different VAT regulations in multiple countries, and as a result, accountants need to provide expert advice to their clients.

Target Audience

The session is tailored for accountants who specialize in tax accounting, or work with clients who have operations in multiple countries and need to navigate the complexities of tax and regulatory compliance in different jurisdictions.
