You will not be able to use the EU VAT refund system to claim VAT refunds on expenses incurred in an EU member state on or after 1 January 2021.
You will be able to view previous claims and amend previous claims until 31 March 2021.
Claims for a refund for expenses incurred in an EU member state on or after 1 January 2021 will need to be made via each EU member state. Each EU member state has its own process for refunding VAT to businesses based outside the EU. You’ll need to use the process for the EU member state where you’re claiming a refund.
