EXCISE DUTY REFUND STEPS
How It Works
Sign the documents that we send you and FastVAT will become your reliable Excise duty refund agent.
Send us the copies of your refuelling invoices. Many of the countries allow a retroactive excise duty refund covering 1 to 6 years back!
We will then analyse the invoices you send us and give you an estimate of the recoverable amount in each country.
For fast refund: We deposit your refund claims and follow up until your refund is completed.
For the standard refund: You receive your refunded amounts once authorities have processed your claims.
If your refund is delayed or foreign authorities request additional documents, we check and reply to them to ensure the success of your refund claims!
ABOUT FUEL EXCISE DUTY
Those Who Can Apply
European Transport Companies for goods and passengers
As of today, road hauliers can recover fractions of the taxes on fuel in France, Spain, Slovenia, Belgium and Italy. The recoverable amounts in these countries are good enough to represent an interest to claim this refund through a certain procedure.
Thanks to FASTVAT knowledgeable and secured processing of Excise Duty claims over Europe, we offer the pre-financing of recoverable tax amounts to transport companies, allowing, in some cases and countries, a quarterly recovery of liquidity just days after the end of each quarter, instead of waiting for customs’ refunds that could take up to a year.
Fuel Excise duty for which period and what is the deadline?
Some of the countries allow retroactivity to a number of years in the past.
Contact FASTVAT to get more detailed information about national excise duty refund rules.
How long does it take to local customs to respond to your excise duty refund claim?
FastVAT registers and files applications in each country in which you have sufficiently refuelled and keeps in touch with the administration until the refund is complete.
In some cases, we can prefinance the amount of the excise duty claimed: you can receive the full quarterly or yearly amount as soon as the claim period is open instead of waiting for more than 6 months to get a decision by local customs.
