- VAT COMPLICANES: REGISTRATION AND RETURN FILING
Once registered under VAT, businesses will be required to file periodic statutory declarations. VAT returns will need to be filed (quarterly), which summaries all the taxable transactions that the business has made in that specific period.
Depending on transactions types and values, business may have to pay the VAT surplus to the tax authorities, or will be eligible to make a claim for a refund
