France to introduce e-filing for 13th Directive VAT refund requests for non-EU businesses

28 May 2021

From 1 July 2021, non-EU businesses must request 13th Directive VAT refund claims electronically through a fiscal representative established in France.

These types of claims are made by businesses who incur VAT in an EU country, but have no form of sales that would justify a full VAT registration in order to reclaim this VAT. 

Previously, these types of refunds could be applied for by filling out a form and sending this to the tax office. However, from July only a fiscal representative will be allowed to make these applications online on behalf of the company that incurred the VAT.
