EU warns Germany regarding its unreasonable restrictions on providing VAT refunds

30 July 2018

The European Commission (EC) recently warned Germany that it must reduce its restrictions on providing VAT refunds to non-resident businesses.

The EC stated that Germany was unjustified in denying VAT refunds to taxpayers from other member states when all reasonable required information in accordance with the EU VAT refund directive, had been provided.

Germany now has two months to comply with the EC’s request to reduce their restrictions or they will face a referral to the European Court of Justice.
