Value Added Tax 

VAT is often overlooked by new business owners. It is only after the business owners receive tax bills with a penalty when they reach us to fix the problem.  Value Added Tax(or VAT) levied on the sale of goods or services in Korea. Businesses who are VAT-registered must charge their customers 10% on the goods or services they are selling and then pay VAT to National Tax Service every six months.

National Tax Service recommends all registered businesses issue an electronic tax invoice or a cash receipt. VAT data is reported and maintained almost on a real-time basis in Hometax and inconsistency of VAT filing can trigger a tax investigation by the tax office.

At ARA TAX, with our in-depth knowledge and experience of advising cross-border transactions, we can help you establish a strong foothold not only on local but also on the global market. Examples of our professional services for VAT related issues are the following:

  • VAT registrations for new businesses
  • VAT filing and compliance with local VAT law
  • VAT reclaim and refund
  • VAT risk management
  • VAT return for a liaison office of a global company
