VAT deductibility in Germany – practical information and examples


VAT deductibility in Germany – practical information and examples

During the training, we will focus on the practical aspects of German VAT deductibility. We will tell you about how to apply for a refund of the excess input tax over the output tax, how to correct VAT returns in the event of overstating the VAT refund, what conditions must be met to deduct input tax and what expenses do not give such a right (i.e. can we deduct VAT from car expenses, representation, business trips, employee meetings and gifts?).

We will also tell you when the purchase invoice is valid from a formal point of view, thus enabling the deduction of input tax, and therefore what information should be included on the invoices so that the VAT deduction is not questioned during a potential tax control. What’s more, we will indicate how much time the German tax authorities have for such an inspection and when the right to deduct VAT expires.

All these topics will be illustrated with practical examples. Training is dedicated primarily to BPO and SSC industry, (including management staff and persons responsible for posting purchase invoices) as well as for other companies making a purchases in Germany.

Training Level: intermediate. Duration: approximately 45 minutes
