Single point of contact
One dedicated client manger is your sole point of contact for all European countries.
We are supported by a network of experienced tax consultants in each European country. This allows us to deliver compliance with the latest regulations, closely following local VAT changes.
Have you acquired costs with foreign VAT that you wish to recover? We can help you to refund VAT following the local tax legislation. Entities that is established in one country, but receive supplies in another country may be able to refund the VAT charged from that transaction. The required procedure is depending on the location of establishment and transaction. For instance, the application process inside EU is different from Non-EU.
Typical expenses eligible for recovery are:
- Local purchases
- Passenger transportation
- Trainings & seminars
- Travel & Entertainment (T&E) expenses
Continous changes in legislation
Rules and regulations may vary from country to country and are continuously changing. Athene Tax keeps you updated about current requirements and are submitting your refund applications according to valid legislation in each country.
Refund from T&E expenses
Vat refund from T&E is time consuming. Firstly, it requires dedicated resources. Secondly, you need to obtain detailed knowledge about local VAT legislation in each country. As a result, many companies do not utilise the opportunity to recover VAT from travel expenses. Often there are many small transactions from several different countries. However, all these small transactions add up. For this reason, Athene Tax offers you a solution that is easy, fast and affordable.
Safe refund process
Athene Tax is dedicated to make VAT refund seem safe and easy. We offer our clients a premium service where we manage the complete process, from collecting and evaluating invoices until a successful refund is completed. During the process, you receive updated about the current application status, until successful refund I granted to you.
