    VAT IT is an innovative creator of breakthrough technology that streamlines indirect tax recovery. It would be a mistake to think of VAT IT as only a consultancy or service-based business. We are completely powered by our industry-first, leading software applications.

     It’s our technology that makes us unique, streamlined and trustworthy. No matter how big or small a client is, scalability is never a problem. Our clients can rest in peace knowing that we do everything in our power to ensure 100% compliancy and the most secure data protection.

    “OCR technology mitigates the risk of human error, it can read data off invoice images and we can teach it all the many authority rules and regulations so that it never falters. It can also read and capture data 24 hours a day, seven days a week, meaning our clients get their refunds faster,” explains Adam Pantanowitz, Chief Technology Officer at VAT IT Group.

  • VAT can be reclaimed on employee expenses and their travel throughout Europe, Canada, Australia, South Korea, New Zealand and Taiwan. However, the qualifying laws and application procedures required are elaborate and vary from region to region. It is time-consuming to submit applications to the relevant tax authorities, and often language barriers make this even more difficult. Add to this the fact that, in order to get the full tax rebate benefit, companies need to devote significant time, money and human capital, and it’s clear you need the help of specialists.
  • Large amounts of VAT are incurred on foreign supplier invoices where VAT is charged due to the nature of the supply being incurred or where the VAT is incorrectly charged. VAT IT has spent years researching and understanding the categories of supplies that incur this type of VAT.
  • Whether you are in telecommunications, pharmaceuticals, mining or manufacturing – if your company has shipped equipment DDP* to foreign countries, you have been incurring significant foreign tax charges.

  • If your company is involved in the organisation of meetings, incentive travel, conferences or exhibitions/events (MICE), and you provide services to business clients in countries other than your own, you are eligible to claim the VAT charged by your foreign suppliers. When you engage directly with these suppliers on behalf of your clients, it is likely they will include local VAT charges on their invoices. Fortunately – providing you have invoiced your client for services provided – your company can claim this VAT back via the appropriate refund mechanism.
  • The VAT and sales taxes incurred on the purchase of various travel components, including hotels and car rental – which are then sold by tour operators to foreign travellers – are refundable in certain EU countries.

    This may come as a surprise to many tour operators in the business of selling international travel packages, who may assume they are governed by the Tour Operator Margin Scheme (TOMS), and therefore are not entitled to input VAT refunds. This is not always the case. There are numerous exceptions to TOMS, depending on the country of travel and the parties to the transaction through which the travel components were purchased and resold.
