UK VAT claims by non-EU businesses

Source: HM Revenue & Customs | | 04/12/2018

The VAT paid in other EU countries is often recoverable by VAT-registered businesses in the UK, who bought goods or services for business use. The amount of VAT that is refundable depends on the other countries' rules for claiming input tax. It is important to note that VAT incurred in foreign countries can never by reclaimed on a domestic UK VAT return.

There are special rules for businesses established outside the EU submitting a claim for VAT incurred in the UK. The deadline for the submission of a refund request for expenses incurred in the UK by non-EU businesses during the period 1 July 2017 – 30 June 2018, is 31 December 2018. There are a number of conditions which must be met in order for a claim to qualify.

The form that should be used by these businesses to submit a claim is called a VAT65A form. The accompanying notes explain how the form should be completed and includes details of what other alternative versions can be used in place of a VAT65A.
