How to claim back your VAT in France?

The 2024 Olympic Games will be for France a monumental gathering of athletes, spectators and businesses from around the world.
As businesses prepare to participate and contribute to the success of this global event, one important aspect to consider for companies is the Value Added Tax (VAT) incurred during the occasion.
Fortunately, with the help of RM Boulanger (RMB), businesses can efficiently navigate the complex process of claiming VAT expenses.

Understanding VAT Refund Claims

Value Added Tax (VAT) is a consumption tax levied on goods and services in many countries worldwide, including France. When companies incur VAT on their business expenses, such as costs related to accommodations, transportation, and entertainment, they may be eligible to claim a refund on the VAT paid. However, this process can be intricate and time-consuming, particularly for businesses that are unfamiliar with the local regulations and requirements.

What type of expenses may be eligible for a VAT refund?

If you are a business taking part in the Olympic Games 2024, your company can potentially recover Value Added Tax (VAT) on various expenses incurred in France during the Olympic Games.
While specific eligibility and regulations may vary depending on the country and jurisdiction, here are some common types of expenses on which companies can seek VAT recovery:

→ Business-related travel and accommodation costs,

→ Conferences, trade shows, and related event expenses,

→ Exhibition fees and booth rentals,

→ Tolls,

→ Fuel fees,

→ Buying and reselling products within the same European territory.

It's important to note that VAT recovery eligibility and requirements can vary based on the country and specific circumstances. Companies should consult with our VAT experts as soon as possible to determine the precise rules and regulations governing VAT refunds for their participation in the Olympics 2024.
