VAT refunds for non-EU businesses
When can you claim a VAT refund?
If your business is not established in the EU, and you are charged VAT on business activities in an EU country where you have not supplied goods or services, you may be entitled to have the VAT refunded by the authorities in that country. For example, a company established in Switzerland takes part in a conference in Belgium and is charged BE VAT on their hotel bill.
How to claim your VAT refund
To get a refund, you must send your application to the authorities in the EU country where you incurred the VAT. Some EU countries will only grant you a refund if the country where your business is based offers similar refund arrangements for businesses from that EU country.Choose country
