Technology Can Solve MTIC Fraud – 2

In his recent article “Technology Can Solve MTIC Fraud – VLN, RTvat, D-VAT certification”, Richard Ainsworth discussed the three main options that claim to be capable of resolving missing-trader VAT fraud, and concluded that real-time VAT collection (RTvat) is the only solution that is actually capable of preventing that type of fraud and limiting several other forms of fraud.

Richard Ainsworth has the final word in this discussion on the merits of real-time VAT collection in general and RTvat in particular.
