ANALYSIS OF SUPPLY CHAIN FOR TAX
We support you from design, acquistion, performance to sale and/or issuance. We support you and develop compliance documentation and process analyses for you. Unintentional risks can be prevente. Let us clarify money laundering / anti money laundering, possible national and international customs and VAT regulations, identification and localization of customers/recipients, scope of use of subsidies as well as demarcation from looted art. We will help you with this.
The book Red Harvest by Dashiell Hammett has taught us a lot from a literary point of view:
The corruption of money, greed, power correlate together. Money and geed are powerful forces that become corrupting influences on people an their environment. The Nobel Prize-winning author André Gide called the book of Hammett "a remarkable achievement, the last word in atrocity, cynicism and horror."
WHAT IS A SUPPLY FOR VAT PURPOSES?
We clarify whether your activity constitutes a service from the point of view of VAT or whether your activity falls within the scope of VAT. Non-consumable services are irrelevant for VAT. Have you already considered whether James Bond's feelings or his activity is subject to VAT or not?
Can feeling be treated as consumable good? Are feelings VATable supplies? And what about Bond, James Bond? Are the activities of James Bond (with code number 007 as intelligence officer at Secret Service) taxable? Do we have a supply from a VAT point of view? Let's consider them carefully from a tax perspective
HOW TO TREAT THE UNEXPECTED SITUATION?
Do you have a tax, VAT, customs or other audit? Be prepared for unexpected situations. We will help you proactively and/or accompany you during the audit phase. The composer Edvard Grieg mastered his unexpected situation artistically. Unexpected guests were musically rewarded. Unfortunately, things are a little different in the field of finances.
Wedding Day at Troldhaugen of Mr. Edvard Grieg
Originally called "Gratulanterne kommer" ("The well-wishers are coming"), it was written in 1896 as a memorial of the 25th wedding anniversary of the family Grieg. The Norwegian composer Mr Grieg and his wife celebrated their wedding anniversary, 25 years together!
They had the following difficulties: More guests as invited arrived. But Mr Grieg handled these difficulties with vitality and dynamics in his new melody.
What did Mr. Grieg tell us?
accept that unexpected situation can happen
never react immediately, except when you're ready for emotional response
collaborate for a solution and continue your long term goals.
His music for the 25th wedding anniversary stayed unforgettable.
CONFERENCES & DIALOGUES
VATmeetsArt offers neutral platforms for art discussions. The Confederation supports art (Federal Office of Culture). At the same time, however, the interest of the state is represented by the Federal Tax Administration and the Federal Custos Administration. How does it work exactly?
This kind of inequality but also parallelism can be shown through our platforms VATmeetsArt. If you have a specific concern, do not hesitate to contact us. We consider ourselves as a bridge builder for your concern between the federal authorities and institutions.
We support you in the field of digital art, Crypto Art. Sales activities must be considered differentiated between primary and secondary art markets. Do not be surprised and clarify whether art is measurable or can be considered measurable at all. Frequencies are used not only for Crypto Art but also for telecommunications.
For music-art the international use of frequency for tone A is free. In 1939, the standard concert pitch was set at tone A (=440Hz) at 20°C at the International Concert Tone Conference. However, this frequency is different in certain countries: in German and Austrian symphony orchestras, however, the tone A is 443 Hz, in Switzerland the tone A is 442 Hz. In spite of this, the music seems to be very harmonic.
Not so with taxes. The frequencies of telecommunications and for certain cloud arts are defined and handled differently.
