Returning VAT from other EU member states

Do you commonly have expenses in other member states, even though you do not have business premises there? Do you ship goods within the European Union? Do your employees take business trips abroad? Do you participate in professional training and seminars outside of the Czech Republic? Does your company regularly present itself at various foreign trade fairs and exhibitions?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you could very well be in a situation where the value added tax paid in other member states comprises a considerable part of your operating costs.

VAT paid in another member state cannot be claimed through the usual VAT return. It is, however, possible to get back VAT paid abroad through an electronic VAT return request. The procedure for the VAT return adheres to unified European legislation.
