What was that guy thinking?

June 12, 2005

I may or may not have mentioned the new account at work that I was assigned to recently: Maquet.

The company is based in the Netherlands.  So I now deal with the Value-Added Tax everyday.  The guy who came up with this must have done so while in a padded room.

Read the mission statement of the EU in relation to the VAT.  Yeah right.

But as for the VAT itself, check out this page outlining it and then the page outlining the exceptions.  Whew.  Work has definitely gotten more interesting.

    Taxation systems in general are way more ridiculous than they really should be. Remember, the US tax code is more than 11x as long as the Bible.
