Justification of Punishment

If a company makes mistakes in complying with tax regulations or reporting, or have committed errors in the past, tax authorities can impose penalties and impose interest.

These penalties may include a certain percentage of the error, or a fixed amount, with significant penalties possibly being several thousand EURO’s. Some penalties are automatically generated by the reporting system used by the relevant tax authority when a declaration or payment is made too late. In other cases, penalties are imposed by a tax inspector who has reviewed your case.

amavat® successfully negotiates with tax authorities in many countries to obtain the correct justification if a client has made a mistake in their VAT returns or have not registered for VAT in time.
