VAT, GST and other sales taxes

As part of EY Tax Services, the Indirect Tax Services team advises on all aspects of VAT, customs and other indirect taxes. The team of tax advisors is led by partners, Breen Cassidy and Jarlath O'Keefe, who are regularly cited by the financial media as leaders in their field. Indeed, since 1996, readers of International Tax Review have consistently voted the EY Indirect Tax group as the 'Number One Indirect Tax Practice in Ireland'.

The belief that each client is unique and thus requires a distinct approach is central to the team's work. Understanding a client's business, researching the finest details and utilising the EY knowledge databases of Irish and global precedents enables the team to match a client's issues with the best available solutions. The ability to consistently seek out and source new ways to help businesses organise their affairs in a VAT efficient manner.

  • Save money with advice on optimum VAT and customs structures.
  • Save time by fulfilling a client's VAT obligations.
  • Free up cash by minimising irrecoverable VAT and recovering VAT from foreign transactions.
  • Help avoid surprises by proactively drawing attention to wider issues that may affect a business.
