Definition: Value-added Tax (VAT)

Value-added Tax (VAT) - "a tax on the difference between the sales of a firm and its purchases from other firms. The appeals of this tax are simplicity, uniformity, the generation of buoyant revenues, and the enabling of a gradual lowering of other tax rates throughout the system." - source: Economic Development 4th Edition by E. Wayne Nafziger
