return for the DAT involves collecting information about all your revenue receipts invoices and in most cases bank statements this can be a bit of an administrative hassle that's why many of our customers let us do this work for them so it makes this such a hassle the VA t is headed to any service or product anyone buys prices in advertisements and the price listed in stores almost always include dat and even in the rare occasion that

it isn't included you'll still end up paying that counter however it's only consumers not businesses that pay dat in the end so what does this mean for you as a business for one it means you are allowed to claim back the v 84 almost all products you buy for your business this means that for everything you buy you have to keep proof of purchase like a receipt or invoice so the government is able to check if you are claiming the

right amount of dat secondly businesses not the government collected dat this means that any time you sell anything you have to charge the customer via t you then are responsible to transfer the collective dat to the government this does not have to be done immediately but rather on a regular interval most businesses do this on a quarterly basis so in that case you have to do your tax returns every quarter go through your records collect your seats
