12.1. VAT on the Supply of Goods by Non-Residents

The supply of goods by a non-resident having a permanent establishment (‘PE’) is subject to VAT in Madagascar.

All non-resident companies without a PE in Madagascar are required to appoint a VAT representative in Madagascar to represent the company in dealings with the tax authorities. Failing to appoint a representative results into the resident customer liable for payment of VAT by application of a reverse-charge mechanism.
