VAT Refunds

VAT Refunds: If you are a registered company, your business location is in the United States, and you are interested in applying for a VAT refund, you must download and submit a VAT Refund application. 
An explanation of the form can be found here: VAT Refund Information.
Read detailed information on VAT refunds to foreign businesses.
The form for "Application for Refund of Value-added Tax" can be found here: Application for Refund of Value-added Tax

For a quarter of the year (e.g. January-March) the VAT refund minimum is EUR 1000. For a complete calendar year the VAT refund minimum is EUR 500. So a company with high quarterly expenditures might opt for the quarterly refund, companies with lower VAT cost might collect their bills for a year and then turn them in for a refund.

VAT refunds can also be recovered by using a service provider. Please review our directory of Business Service Providers.
