We can request a VAT refund if you meet the following conditions:

  1. you are VAT registered in the member state of your residence or place of business
  2. in the country in which you are applying for a VAT refund:
    • you must not be VAT registered
    • you do not have any registered office or branch
    • you do not do business, whereby exports of goods and services from our country is not considered as business

VAT refund – you can apply for a refund if you have paid VAT on, for example:

  • fuel, tolls, road tax, fares
  • participation in exhibitions and trade fairs, seminars and conferences
  • transportation, accommodation and food
  • lease of movable things, automobiles, car rentals
  • servicing, repairs
  • goods purchased and consumed in the country at the same time
  • marketing costs
  • costs for advice, representation, etc.

Please take into account that each country has its own rules for VAT refunds. We will gladly clarify the rules within individual countries in a personal meeting.

Filing and processing your application

You must submit an application in Czech by 30 September of the calendar year following the refund period. An application may be made for a maximum period of one calendar year. The amount of the required tax refund must be at least EUR 50. The period for which a tax refund is required may also be shorter. However, with the exception of the rest of the year, it must be at least three months. In this case, the required tax must exceed EUR 400. Under the new rules, you need not send original documents with the application. However, if the tax base exceeds the value of EUR 250 for fuel or EUR 1000 for other types of goods acquired or services received, you must submit electronic copies of documents in pdf. jpg. or tif. The applicable documents must meet the requirements of a tax document in that state. You do not have to submit a certificate of registration for VAT; a Czech tax administrator shall certify this fact in the initial evaluation of the application. If the application meets all the requirements, the tax administrator will ensure its software translation into the language of the country in which the refund is sought. Unless the tax authorities do not require any additional information, they are required to announce a decision about a refund within four months of receipt of the request.
