New 13th Directive procedure to recover VAT in Germany
Normally, non-EU businesses can recover VAT in Germany while not VAT registered in the country.
The procedure to get this VAT back follows the 13th Directive rules, which give Member States flexibility on the conditions, time limits, forms and due dates.
As from July 2016, the 13th Directive refund claim needs to be submitted electronically through the portal of the German tax authorities. All information is in German and it includes important changes to the previous form. Marosa can assist you with these new requirements and any other VAT refund of EU and non-EU businesses across Europe.
