What information is needed on a VAT compliant invoice?

Depending on the type of application, an original or scanned invoice is needed to support your claim. Where scanned invoices are acceptable, they should be submitted electronically with the application. All original invoices should be kept as they may be requested at a later date by the member state of refund. If original invoices are required to support your VAT reclaim, they must contain the following criteria:

  • Invoice number;
  • Invoice date;
  • Date of the supply of the goods or the services;
  • A detailed description of the goods/services provided – the quantity and nature of the goods supplied or the extent and nature of the services rendered;
  • Unit price(s);
  • Total net taxable amount per VAT rate;
  • The VAT rate applied;
  • The VAT amount payable;
  • Gross invoice amount.
