What are the main criteria for making a VAT reclaim?

If your organisation incurs VAT abroad as part of your business activities you are most likely eligible to claim a VAT refund.

Each country has different conditions for foreign VAT refunds but the common criterion for reclaiming VAT in most countries include VAT registration, your business activities and location and the types of expenses you have incurred.

Most organisations we talk to understand the importance of foreign VAT reclaim in reducing expenses. However, the complexities and time demands of recovering VAT can make VAT reclaim impractical for many internal VAT and tax teams. That’s where Taxback International comes in. Our experience and local tax legislation expertise can safeguard your business against tax losses, ensure you’re compliant with all tax regulations and provide complete management of your foreign VAT recovery process.

If you are a medium-large or multinational organisation with numerous invoices and expenses across more than one country, our VAT analysis can analyse all of your travel and expense data to identify your total VAT reclaim opportunity.

In most EU countries the tax year runs from 1st January to the 31st December and the deadline for submitting VAT claims is the 30th September, although exceptions do apply. For non-EU companies the deadline may differ – for many countries it is 30th June.

Some countries allow retrospective claims, also known as late claims.

Taxback International will help your organisation sort through the complexities of each country’s requirements and provide you with an end-to-end VAT process for all of your foreign VAT refund needs.
