The expert's eye
The correct determination of the VAT status of an international association cannot be improvised. A professional and methodical approach to VAT is essential to clarify the VAT status because it depends on several parameters that are specific to each association.
Therefore, getting advice on such a complex matter can sometimes help to avoid many setbacks.
VAT errors, even if made in good faith, can put the association's finances in serious danger. In that scenario, the association's director or accountant (internal or external) could be held liable.
