VAT and Other Indirect Taxes

We are Stibbe VAT and Other Indirect Taxes specialists

We deal with VAT matters for clients, providing clear, sound and practical advice in what is often a confusing and complex area of law for them.

VAT and Other Indirect Taxes

Our knowledge and expertise focuses on the complex VAT element of many transactions.

Across the Benelux, we handle VAT aspects (including advance tax rulings) for the acquisitions and disposal of business assets, fund structuring, and financing arrangements, such as securitisation and receivable purchase arrangements. We also regularly advise clients on the VAT treatment of cross border supply chains for goods and services, both within the EU and beyond.

Of particular note is our special expertise on the VAT status of government agencies and VAT in telecoms and financial sectors.

Furthermore, we advise clients on the VAT and real estate transfer tax aspects of public/private partnerships as well as classic real estate transactions, together with industrial, construction and redevelopment projects.

In servicing our clients’ needs, we work in close partnership with colleagues from other specialisms within our firm such as administrative and corporate law.
