Who is the payer of VAT?
The VAT payer is the last consumer of goods or services in the Value Added Tax procedure. The supplier or seller realizes VAT from the purchaser at every level of sale and deposits to the Government treasury. As the consumer is the last among the purchasers, therefore, the ultimate liability of VAT devolves on the consumer. The supplier or seller deposits the VAT realized only at the level of sale to the Government treasury.
