The deadline for submitting VAT refund applications from other member states is approaching

Don't forget to apply for a VAT Refund from other European Union member states for 2021.

The deadline is September 30, 2022, but to avoid problems with your application, we recommend that you apply well in advance of this deadline.

An application for a VAT refund can be submitted for a period of at least three consecutive calendar months within one calendar year and at most for a period of one calendar year, while it is also possible to submit an application that concerns the so-called rest of the calendar year, for a period shorter than three calendar months. For the relevant calendar year, it is possible to submit multiple VAT refund applications to one Member State.

The minimum amount of VAT refunded through the submitted application is EUR 50, or EUR 400. In case that the request for a tax refund is submitted for a period shorter than one calendar year, but not shorter than three calendar months, the amount of VAT that is requested to be refunded must not be less than EUR 400. If the application is submitted for a period shorter than three calendar months (if this period represents the rest of the calendar year) or for the period of the entire calendar year, the minimum amount of VAT to be refunded is EUR 50.

In general, taxpayers who have their registered office, place of business or establishment in Slovakia and have purchased goods and services in other member states with VAT of the relevant state (or imported goods to member states) for the purposes of their business are entitled to a VAT refund.

In conclusion, we would like to add that the request for a VAT refund can only be submitted electronically via the VAT Refund application on the Financial Administration portal.
