VAT - Value Added Taxes Services 

company_vision.pngLocal Businesses

Vanuatu has no form of income tax on salaries or business profits, however, a Value Added Tax is collected by the Vanuatu Government. VAT is similar to the United Kingdom and New Zealand VAT Tax and in Australia the Goods and Services Tax. 

All Vanuatu Businesses with a Turnover (sales) of over VT5 million (approximately US$50,000) are required to pay a 15% tax to the Government on their sales. The tax is included in the purchase price to the final buyer of the product or service. The VAT legislation allows the refund of VAT paid on all supplies. 

The VAT System is an important part of the Vanuatu Government revenue strategy and therefore having ICOUNT prepare your returns to the Customs and Inland Revenue Department can provide you more time at your business or enjoying life in Vanuatu.
