Advice on reimbursement of input tax

As business owners, foreign trade visitors and exhibitors can claim a reimbursement of any VAT paid. In this section, we have compiled some information and guidance on input tax refunds.

Value Added Tax
VAT is a consumer tax that is levied on the consumption of goods and services in Germany. The current applicable rate is generally 19% and in some cases 7%.

Businesses from EU Countries
Applications for VAT refunds from foreign traders established in an EU Member State can only be submitted in the trader's country of residence (Article 7 of Council Directive 2008/9/EC of 12 February 2008). For this purpose, each member state has its own electronic portal. This service is free of charge. Here you will find an overview of the foreign authorities (PDF, 3 MB) (PDF, 3 MB) .


Businesses from Non-EU Countries
Under certain conditions, businesses not based in the EU (so-called third countries) who procure supplies or other services in Germany for their business may be reimbursed for input tax invoiced to them through the pre-tax refund procedure pursuant to Section 18 (9) of the German Value Added Tax Act (UStG) and Sections 59 to 61a of the German Value Added Tax Implementing Ordinance (UStDV). This is the responsibility of the Federal Central Tax Office. This service is also free of charge.
