What we do
VAT IT is the world’s leading indirect tax reclaim company assisting over 8,000 clients around the world. We operate from 29 wholly owned offices situated in Europe, Asia, Africa and America and employ over 400 knowledgeable specialists (of which 385 are all under 40) dedicated to our core business of cross border TAX Refunds. VAT IT has been involved in the VAT industry for over 16 years.
Why Work For Us
Because you’ll be successful, because we hate rules and structure, because we embrace your glorious absurdity. We know that only crazy people can create magic… And we’re a whole bunch of crazy.
VAT IT is a result-driven meritocracy. If you believe the combination of innovative thinking, teamwork and a sense of urgency creates the right environment to deliver the best possible results for the client, then VAT IT is the right working environment for you. We prioritise a “let’s do it” attitude, passion and problem solving skills over specific qualifications.
Freedom. Liberty. Responsibility.
This is our internal mantra that we live by. We also live by coffee and Jamesons but that’s part of the freedom and liberty philosophies. We give people enough freedom to explore their full potential and with this freedom we believe comes responsibility to be accountable for your results. Even though we’ve been in business for 16 years, we still feel like a start-up. Everyone here is strange and dynamic in their own way and together, like a dysfunctional family from a Wes Anderson film, we’re building cutting-edge tech.
