Many exporters struggle to understand multi-jurisdictional VAT & GST regulations in the foreign markets where they do business. Companies exporting to Canada, for example, may have difficulty determining if they meet the definition of a non-resident business, requiring GST registration. Moreover, with many VAT regimes in the EU and India’s new GST rollout, navigating VAT/GST laws is becoming increasingly complex. Join us for this webinar where we will hear from on-the-ground VAT/GST experts in Canada, India and Europe. Our speakers will provide the information needed to determine requirements and navigate laws for VAT/GST in these markets, and discuss the registration, recovery reporting processes from the perspective of the U.S. exporter. Our speakers will also discuss strategies for negotiating VAT/GST obligations with foreign buyers. Speakers include: Chirag Bakshi, Partner — K.C. Mehta & Co. (India) Michael Fitton, Partner — Lohn Caulder LLP (Canada) Daphne Hemingway, Partner — Blick Rothenberg (UK) Milin Mehta, Partner — K.C. Mehta (India) David MacInnes, Senior Manager — Lohn Caulder LLP (Canada)
