BFM 0010 Value Added Tax on DoD's International Efforts
The Department of Defense (DoD) and its industry partners spend large sums of money on efforts overseas. This can result in purchasers also paying large sums of money on Value Added Tax (VAT) where countries charge VAT on goods and services. But VAT can be exempted if the stakeholders effectively plan and execute the exemption process. This course aims to provide knowledge about VAT and VAT exemption process that involves several stakeholders and documents. The goal is to assist DoD personnel and DoD industry partners doing business abroad to appropriately plan for and obtain VAT exemption.
