VAT RECOVERY FOR NON-RESIDENTS


ITALIAN TAX REFUND
, whose staff is composed of International VAT experts, is specialised in providing advice and assistance for VAT recovery as per European Union Directive 2008/9/CE. Every year, our professional and qualified assistance helps hundreds of European companies to reduce the expenditure related to their international business, thus obtaining - in an easy and safe way - the refund for the VAT paid in:

It is possible to claim VAT Refund on costs incurred such as:
1. Participation fees for Trade Shows, Conferences and Congresses,
2. Participation fees for Training Courses,
3. Oil and toll costs paid for international transportation,
4. Marketing and Customer Seeking services,
5. Processing, Maintenance and many other services subject to International VAT.

In order to get the Refund, it is necessary to sumbit, from the claimant's Member State of estalishment, an electronic claim to be electronically delivered to the relevant tax authority in the foreign Country where VAT has been paid. For example, a Spanish firm which has paid German VAT shall submit his electronic claim from the electronic portal prepared by its local Tax Authority. Through the local portal, the electronic claim will be then delivered to the German Tax Authority, that will remain responsible for its examination and eventual approval and payment.

Refund of VAT may be claimed by all international companies complying with the following conditions:
- subject to VAT payment in their own country of residence within the EU;
- not registered for VAT in the foreign country where they wish to get the refund;
- not appointed a Tax Representative in the foreign country where they wish to get the refund;
- not carried out active VAT-generating business in the foreign country where they wish to get the refund.

In order to Recover the VAT paid abroad, we offer a specialised assistance service consisting in:
• Entertaining direct contacts with local Tax Authorities
• Checking and preparing all documents in order to estimate the amount of the refund
• Providing advice concerning the procedures to adopt in order to optimise further refund claims
• Filling up the proper local electronic form
• Submitting the claim to the competent departments
• Reporting and monitoring the claim until the notification of the final outcome
• Checking the VAT amount recovered
• Contestation at the competent fiscal office for eventual rejected claims.
We expressly exclude by the offered service any appeal to the Tax Commission against the eventual final rejection.
