Getting it right is essential and fulfilling, much as getting it wrong could be disappointing and possibly costly. To get it right you need not only to be well acquainted with VAT rules but also to be regularly updated. In the course of this presentation we will be going through the VAT obligations which arise from the Malta VAT Act and explain in detail the mechanics and processes thereof.
