Vat Refund in Spain for non-established Companies in The EU – Last Call

Jun 8, 2023 | Tax Flash

Foreign companies not established in Spain or in another EU Member State that have been charged VAT in Spain in 2022, can apply for a VAT refund by the peremptory deadline of 30 September 2023.

Read on if you want to know more about the procedure, and the timing!

First of all, it should be noted that the preparatory phase for applying for such a refund may take a long time depending on the State of residence of the non-established company, therefore it is recommended to start the procedure as soon as possible.

Secondly, it is important to remember the relevant steps to be followed:

  1. Appoint a representative in Spain to claim the VAT refund on behalf of the non-established company.
  2. Prepare the necessary powers of attorney and the required documentation, legalized.
  3. Apply for the refund at the Spanish Tax Authorities (AEAT).

At this point, it is important to mention that the representative will be responsible for submitting the documentation to the Spanish Tax Authorities and only after its acceptance (which can take up to a month) the representative will be able to apply for the VAT refund.
