Did You Pay VAT on Shipments to the EU?

  • Did you receive an unexpected, high Value Added Tax (VAT) charge from your shipping provider?
  • Did you ship your product or spare, repair or trial parts to your customer in the European Union and did you have to pay the VAT?
  • Did you ship high-value hardware to a European data center without actually selling the equipment, but still had to pay VAT?
  • Are you using a shipping or logistics agent who handles the paperwork and prepays import VAT on your behalf?

Most companies aren’t aware that it’s possible to reclaim VAT on exports to the European Union (up to 25% of the customs value).

And most people who know they can reclaim the paid VAT do not succeed in getting the money refunded. Typical challenges are foreign language requirements, a lack of knowledge about European Union jurisprudence and the country-specific rules and processes that are a prerequisite to executing a successful VAT refund.

Here is where ExportVAT steps in. We will process your VAT refund and recover VAT for you.
