On 27 and 28 September 2023, Grant Thornton Germany will organise a VAT summit for clients for the second time. The European VAT Summit offers tax practitioners an exclusive VAT forum for knowledge transfer and personal exchange. Because one thing is certain: nationally and internationally operating companies are confronted with a multitude of complex VAT issues. In addition to the risk of a definitive VAT burden, this regulatory density also harbours high potential for conflicts with the tax authorities.

You are warmly invited to this free event which will take place in Düsseldorf, Germany.

What can you expect?

On day one, VAT experts from various Grant Thornton offices will discuss a number of hot topics related to international VAT.

On the second day, you will have the opportunity to participate in workshops and ask questions to the VAT experts present. Take advantage of this opportunity to receive personal advice on the practical application of the law. 

On top of that, a networking event will take place on 27 September.

A few practicalities

  • The event will be held in English.
