Taxport: Recovering Your VAT
Who qualifies to recover UK VAT?
Individuals (i.e. students) cannot recover VAT as they are not registered as corporate taxpayers in their own country.
EU-based Corporations can recover all the VAT paid out in the UK.
Which VAT can I request a refund on?
Each country has its own rules regarding reclaimable expenses.
Typical refundable expenses include:
• Conferences, Trade Fairs, Events and Exhibitions
• Transportation costs including car rental and fuel costs
• Meals and business entertainment
EU-based Universities / Research Centres
If we can establish that your University has a business purpose other than promoting knowledge and furthering education, then you can submit an application for VAT refund. Your accounting department would know if they fall within this category.
Non EU-based Corporations can in general recover VAT paid in the UK.
Non EU-based Universities / Research Centres
If we can establish that your University has a business purpose other than promoting knowledge and furthering education, then you can submit an application for VAT refund. Your accounting department would know if they fall within this category. FYI, there are very few non EU-based Universities which qualify for recovery.
Minimum applications (EU)
• £295 where the application covers less than a calendar year but not less than three calendar months, and
• £35 where the application covers a calendar year or the remainder of a calendar year.
What are the deadlines?
EU companies claiming in the EU: the deadline for submitting invoices for a calendar year is September 30th of the following calendar year. For example: Invoices received in 2012 must be submitted for reclaim by 30th September 2013.
Non-EU Companies: the deadline for submitting applications to the UK for refund is 6 months after the "prescribed period". The prescribed period runs from July to June. For example: Invoices received in July 2011 to June 2012 must be submitted for reclaim 31st December 2012
How long do I have to wait for a refund?
Upon request, applications can be submitted on behalf of your Corporation by our services and the expected turnaround time is 6 to 8 months.
Please pass this information on to your accounting department.
