What are indirect taxes such as VAT, Sales Tax and Goods & Services Tax (GST)?
Indirect taxes, such as VAT, Sales Tax and Goods and Services Tax (GST) are added to the value of supplies of goods and services. These are collected by businesses and paid to the tax authorities. Direct taxes on the other hand, such as income tax and corporation tax, are collected directly from amounts earned and profits generated by individuals and businesses.
