  1. Select the Activities tab on the home page.

  2. Scroll down to Refund applications. Click VAT refund from other EU countries.

  3. Enter the basic details on the application.

    The refund request period always starts on the first day of the month and ends on the last day of the month. If you want to enter a second line of business for the company, select Add new line of business.

    Finally select whether you want to upload an invoice specification as a file or add your invoices one by one to the refund request. If you upload the specification as a file, the invoice details will appear automatically in the next stage.

    Go to the next stage, which is Specification of invoices and import documents.

  4. Add specifications of invoices and import documents. Enter all the details and click OK.

  5. You can add new invoices and import documents by clicking Add new specification. When you have added all the specifications, go to Additional details and attachments.

  8. Note that you will receive two separate acknowledgements of receipt. The first acknowledgement arrives immediately after you have submitted your application in MyTax. The second acknowledgement is sent to you from the country of refund.

    You can edit the request as long as its status is "Submitted". When you edit an application with the status “Submitted”, only the latest version will be forwarded to the country of application.
