Value-added tax is a consumption tax levied on every value addition to a product or service during the supply chain from the production to point of sale. Usually the burden of VAT is passed onto the customer and the tax is withheld by the supplier at each stage of supply chain. The amount of VAT charged is on the product’s cost less any cost of materials used in the product that have already been taxed.
