An estimated 20 Billion Euro in unclaimed EU VAT
Value Added Tax (VAT) is complicated: the mechanism for levying VAT is complex and the procedures for reclaiming it are burdensome. This is probably why some people prefer to call it the “Very Annoying Tax.”
To this date, most EU member states do not seem inclined to reduce the complexity of the VAT refund process and there are strong indications that their reluctance to simplify it is directly related to the significant revenue streams are involved. An estimated 20 billion Euros in unclaimed VAT finds its way to the treasuries of the countries of the European Union every single year.
