Don’t forget: Deadline for claiming VAT refund within the EU is September 30, 2019

LBG Austria - Summary: Domestic entrepreneurs who acquire foreign goods and services may claim the incurred VAT if certain requirements are met. Within the EU the application for VAT refund must be filed no later than September 30 of the following year (for third countries, the 30th of June of the following year). The application for VAT refund from EU Member States for the year 2018 must therefore be submitted no later than September 30, 2019 in the country of residence of the entrepreneur. This deadline is a so-called expiry period which means that any request that has not been received in full by the deadline will be rejected thereafter. The refund period can’t be greater than one calendar year (i.e. January 1st to December 31st) and it can’t be less than three calendar months except in circumstances where the application is in relation to the last quarter of the year. The amount to be refunded must at least be € 400. This does not apply if the refund period is the calendar year or the last period of a calendar year. For these refund periods the amount to be refunded must be at least € 50.
