Reclaiming foreign VAT

Many business costs can be claimed back for tax purposes, such as fuel costs, parking fees and meeting venue hire. However, many companies do not know that foreign payments also qualify for VAT refunds. Just like the VAT on transactions within Germany, claiming back foreign VAT can be an unwieldy and time-consuming process. But when you pay using your XXImo Mobility Card, that, too, is a thing of the past. After all, all transactions on the card are automatically classified as business expenses. Moreover, XXImo uses a comprehensive information system which means that almost anything can be automated. Making it a whole lot easier to claim back your foreign VAT. Ideal, isn't it?

Claiming back foreign VAT – how does it work?

In partnership with VAT specialist VATit, XXImo offers the ‘Foreign VAT reclaim’ service for claiming back VAT paid abroad. For example, VAT can be reclaimed on refuelling, travel and accommodation costs incurred abroad. Reclaiming the foreign VAT is a laborious process because there are differences in the minimum amounts and regulations which apply to VAT refunds from one country to another. VATit has incorporated these rules into its information system, which calculates from which point in time a customer can reclaim a particular amount of VAT. By linking this system to the XXImo cardholder’s details, the process can be largely automated. VATit can also rely on an extensive European network, increasing the chances of successfully reclaiming VAT paid abroad.
