You will not be able to use HMRC’s VAT online services to claim a VAT refund from an EU member state after 5pm on 31 October 2019. You’ll still be able to view your previous claims.
Claim a refund after Brexit
Each EU member state has its own process for refunding VAT to businesses based outside the EU. You’ll need to use the process for the EU member state where you’re claiming a refund, even for unclaimed expenses you had before Brexit.
Find out what the process is for each country on the European Commission website.
