Some facts

• Name VAT stands for "Value Added Tax". It's a kind of tax, which is added at all production stages.
• VAT is intended to apply to consumption. The more goods you buy, the more VAT you pay.
• VAT is payed by a person who is at the end of the consumption chain, buying the product for consumption. For example, a customer buying crisps in the supermarket or the driver using the car wash.
• Formally, the same amount of VAT is also added at the each stage of the chain (supermarket, car wash, a manufacturer of chips, etc.), but in fact they only pay back tax received from the previous stage. Finally, the VAT paid by the consumer goes "from hands to hands" - through supermarket, the manufacturer of chips, potato farmer etc. - until it goes to the tax office.
• Trader, who simultaneously buys (pays VAT) and sells goods (receives VAT), doesn't really pay VAT. The amount of tax charged while buying is canceled by tax charged while selling.
• The disadvantage of VAT is it increases social stratification - it's applied to the final consumer, so it is most noticeable to the least wealthy people. This issue is partially solved by varying tax rates for example by setting lower VAT levels to the most basic goods like bread. It's also considered that procedures for charging and collecting VAT are too complex and they allow for many forms of abuse, for example fake invoices fraud to claim back VAT which was never really paid.
