Value Added Tax is a consumption tax added to most of the goods and services in various countries all over the globe. The national tax systems of Europe, Canada, Japan and Australia allow most non-resident business entities, worldwide, to a refund of VAT. Businessmen, registered for VAT, can claim back VAT on goods they buy and services they avail, but only if those purchases relate to sales they make are liable for VAT.

VAT has different names in different countries like in Canada it is called GST and JCT in Japan. VAT registration is necessary to claim refund. VAT rates also vary from country to country, like in European nations the VAT rate is 6 - 25%, 7.11% in Canada, 5% in Japan and 10% in Australia. Similarly, the refund rules vary from country to country. Most North American business entities qualify for a refund. Some of the typical recoverable expenses are:

  • Hotel and Transportation
  • Trade Shows and Conferences
  • Logistics & Warranty Products
  • Drop-shipping
  • Movie & TV Production
  • Installation & Maintenance Contracts
  • Telecom & Network Services
