Claiming VAT refunds from EU Countries and the Brexit deadline. Act now before it’s too late.
The current government position of the UK leaving the European Union on 31 January 2020 will impact business. You need to be aware of how it will impact your business.
The latest guidance from HMRC advises that it will not be possible to use HMRC’s VAT online services to claim a VAT refund from EU member states after 5pm on 31 January 2020.
After Brexit, any claims for refunds will need to be made using the existing processes used by businesses based outside the EU. This applies even where the claim is for expenditure incurred before Brexit.
For convenience and ease of use, we recommend you get your claim processed on the HMRC Portal before 5pm on 31 January 2020.
