Some may know, some may not – with just over a month to go, there is a claim deadline approaching on September 30th 2018. This is for 2008/09/EC claims, which was formerly known as 8th directive claims. It is an important date for your diary and there are a few things to bear in mind – if you miss the deadline late submissions are not accepted across the board. It is important not to leave submission of your claims till the last minute in the event any issues arise, VAT4U can help you with this process from start to finish, often at the click of a button…
Things to remember
Directive 2008/09/EC relates to foreign VAT recovery for EU companies from EU member states, this is often referred to as EU to EU. The process involves a taxable company established in one EU Member State attempting to reclaim VAT from the EU Member State of Refund through an electronic portal, this is provided by their own tax administration in the Member State of Establishment. There are a few things to bear in mind, as mentioned. What happens if you miss the deadline is simple, you cannot claim for the period in question, meaning you lose the potential gains from your VAT refund. Likewise, there are no extensions or corrections granted after the deadline upon submission. Don’t forget to check your data and invoices, as incorrect data can lead to penalties or rejections. Each country handles this process differently with some being more strict and thorough than others. Attachment of invoices are also required in some countries. Keep in mind the differing legislation – why not get in touch with us if you have a question, we will be happy to get you back on track!
