But who is entitled to a VAT refund?
N.B.: under the procedure established by Directive
2008/9/EC, VAT refunds are available to all firms or
professionals who, in the period covered by the application:
- did not have in the Member State of refund, the seat of their
economic activity, or a fixed establishment from which business
transactions were effected, or their domicile or normal place of
- did not engage in any transactions subject to VAT in the Member
State of refund. However, there are the following exceptions
- all the supply of transport services and services ancillary
thereto, which are exempted
- the supply of goods and services to a person who is liable for
payment of VAT
Expenditure on which the VAT refund is applied for must be
incurred only for business purpose and not just for private use. A
VAT refund becomes necessary in the event of a business transaction
between two firms in different countries.
Companies are then entitled to an EU VAT refund in proportion to
the rate of VAT deduction in force in their country of residence
(particularly for categories of business which deduct VAT on a
lumpsum basis or pro-rata).
