VAT, or Value Added Tax, is a consumption based tax charged on most goods or services locally bought or rendered.
VAT is a stable tax reform that must be supplied in order to create and maintain an ample revenue stream. The increase of debt is an issue that must be detained, along with the realization that past customs activities, along with the decrease in custom duties, are inadequate forms of governmental income. The staged collection process of VAT will allow a safe and effective form of tax passage and will provide sufficient funding to future government activities as well economic and population expansions.
The standard rate of VAT for most goods and services is 7.5%. Some goods and services are zero-rated, i.e. a 0% rate of VAT applies to them, and some are exempt. A list of exempt supplies can be found in the VAT Act.
All consumers pay VAT. The VAT collected by the businesses will be paid to the government.
