The value added tax (VAT), is a type of indirect turnover based tax that is levied during the final phase of the purchaser of the goods and is included in the price of the purchased item or service. Being a turnover tax, VAT is levied at each stage of the production and the distribution process as well. Although liability for the tax rests on the person who supplies or imports the goods or services, the real burden of VAT is borne by the final consumer (shifting feature). This means that such type of tax is characterized by its shift. It is non-cumulative, based on the method of invoice (only Japan is the exception), aimed at entrepreneurs as well. Tax shifting is the most important concept associated with VAT. With the deduction mechanism the difference between the VAT liability of a person on his (their) sales (output VAT) and the amount of VAT, has been already paid by them on his (their) purchases (input VAT). This brief article targets to summarize and compare the VAT systems of Turkey and of Poland with consideration on the general applications of VAT in EU countries.
