Recovering intra-community VAT while being established in a different EU Member State can be long and complicated for companies.
To determine if you are meeting all the requirements for the refund as per the local regulations, you will need to perform an in-depth analysis of your company’s activity and of all the invoices mentioning the refundable VAT.
