Recoup up to 5% of foreign travel spend

Taxeo helps you recover the value-added tax you’re leaving behind.

Businesses leave significant savings on the table when they don’t reclaim value-added tax paid on their travelers’ meals, hotels and car rentals abroad. In fact, as much as 5% of foreign travel spending goes toward VAT.

So, why don’t more companies try to recoup VAT? Because it’s a confusing, bureaucratic process that costs time and money. But the reality is it’s far more expensive not to recoup VAT.  BCD Travel estimates that a company spending €5 million per year on foreign travel could easily be losing €300,000 by failing to go after VAT. And that’s a conservative figure.

The good news is that managing foreign VAT for European Union transactions has gotten easier because of BCD Travel’s partnership with VAT-recovery firm Taxeo. Here’s how it works: Hotels, car rental companies and other suppliers sign up for Taxeo’s automated, paperless, VAT-compliant invoicing process. This combination of technology, expertise and economies of scale ensures greater foreign VAT recovery than even large multinational businesses can accomplish on their own.
