Input VAT Submission Service

Service Description

DutyPay makes it easy to reclaim input tax and import sales tax in other EU countries with the Input VAT Submission Service.

Justifiable refund claims for purchases or imports in other EU countries can be easily submitted. This service assumes that the data provided is correct and the amounts requested are deductible under national VAT laws.

For customers with an active VAT submission service in the contract country:

Deductible input VAT commingling transactions (commingling buy, commingling sale) are automatically included in returns. A separate Input VAT Submission Service is not necessary.
