In nearly all European countries, companies can apply for reimbursement of VAT for the purchased goods and / or services , and they can also recover the fuel tax. But mostly, this case required a series of formalities. Through UTA VAT refund service, you save time and money!

How is the VAT refunded?

UTA offers you a complete and transparent service for recovery of VAT in all European countries. Because there may be language barriers or electronic portals that can complicate the process of reimbursement, UTA representatives handle all necessary formalities. Upon request, our partner will complete VAT refund claim for the tax authorities in the official language of the country. This saves precious time, avoiding complex procedures and bureaucracy.

What type of VAT refund service can you choose?

Depending on your needs, we can offer you three types of VAT refund services:

  • Standard VAT reimbursement - if time and money is not an issue for you, you can opt for the standard process of VAT recovery, which can last up to 12 months.

If you do not want to wait that long, we can offer two possibilities (in cooperation with our service partner), which will enable you to dispose much earlier of your VAT amounts to be refunded.

  • Due Date VAT Reimbursement Service - the relevant amount will be credited to you within 30 days after the end of the quarter
  • Fast VAT reimbursement - the relevant amount will be credited to you already in your next UTA invoice

Once the corresponding tax authority has processed your request, the VAT amount reimbursed* will automatically be credited to you in your UTA invoice.

Additional benefits at a glance:

  • We take care of your requests for refund of VAT.
  • In case of Fast VAT Reimbursement, immediate credit of the VAT amounts to be reimbursed* relating to invoices issued by other companies (if applicable), after receipt by our service partner.
  • We check your vouchers and tax assessment notices and we will submit a written objection, if required.
  • You do not need to continue to collect, prepare or send UTA vouchers, nor to enter the relevant data in the online portal.
  • Early availability of VAT amounts to be reimbursed* and, thus, improved liquidity - according to the above mentioned types of reimbursement.
