Indirect taxes include various taxes such as value added tax, special consumption tax, stamp duty, special communication tax and customs duties. Because of their nature, indirect taxes can have significant impacts on cash flow and costs of entities. While these taxes are important for all kinds of entities, they are particularly vital for enterprises that are mainly engaged in transactions subject to value added tax and special consumption tax. 

With the tax policies they apply, countries aim to keep their tax incomes at maximum level. For the realization of tax income at desired levels, certain criteria should be fulfilled such as applying tax rates at reasonable levels. Indirect taxes have become an important factor for deriving tax income in recent years.

VAT, SCT and other indirect taxes directly affect the supply chain and financial system of the enterprise. As real time and timely management of these taxes is required, they may lead to difficulties in tax functions. Cash flow of these taxes which are mostly invisible may have important impacts on the absolute costs and risks.
