Your VAT recovery service provider



ITR is your independent expert in addressing foreign VAT requirements.

  • Has your business incurred VAT abroad?

We will guide you through the burdensome and complex processes of foreign VAT (e.g. recovery, registration etc.). Our aim is to make the relevant process as smooth and hassle free as possible, allowing you to focus your valuable resources on your core business.


As a family run and therefore independent service provider, our emphasis is on the quality of our service.

They will ensure that your questions are answered promptly and that you are kept well-informed about your foreign VAT position.

We also benefit from strong links to our sister firm based in Germany as well as a flexible network of international cooperation partners.

The provision of goods and services abroad may trigger a requirement to register locally for VAT in the countries your business trades with, even if your business is not domiciled there. ITR can assess your requirement to register for VAT in such countries both within and outside of the European Union. This ensures that you always stay compliant with all foreign VAT requirements.

Quality is key for foreign VAT registrations as failure to comply can lead to significant interest and penalty charges. Our processes are robust, with regular reminders and clear communication so that your business can achieve full compliance with local VAT regulations at all times.

As an independent, family run business we can ensure that there is always a member of the team available to address your needs. We will gladly answer any country specific questions about local registration requirements, so do not hesitate to call or email us.

ITR provides the following VAT registration services abroad:

  • Analysis of whether your business needs to register
  • Registration of the business for local VAT
  • Preparation of all returns for your business to stay compliant
  • De-registration when a registration abroad is no longer required
