The value added tax in Germany is referred to as Mehrwertsteuer and Umsatzsteuer. However according to the German tax law, the correct term is Umsatzsteuer and levied on the production of goods and services in Germany. The current rate of VAT (Umsatzsteuer) in Germany is 19% and became operative from 1st January, 2007. In Germany, a reduced tax of 7% is added to sales of particular items such as foods, magazines and books.

 

The VAT can be refunded by the revenue office if the merchandise or service is purchased and exported by a company whose residence is inside or outside the European Union.

This procedure is different from that of private persons who can be refunded by the vendor (so called as Tax Free).

 

Common examples of these services are e.g. the expenses related with an exhibition, also all hotel stay related expenses like rent, accomodation and taxi.

 

The refundable VAT amount depends on the residency of the company, as there are differences between those residing in another EU country and those residing in a so called third country.

EU residents can claim for a refund of German VAT for a period of at least 3 consecutive months in any one calendar year. The refundable VAT needs to amount to 200 € or more (20 € or more if the application period is the calendar year).

 

Non EU residents can claim for a refund of German VAT under special regulations if the refundable VAT amount is 500 € or more (for a period of at least 3 consecutive months) or 250 € or more (if the application period is the calendar year).
