In short, no. Your business needs to be registered for VAT in order to reclaim it.
Yes. You are not limited to recover VAT on domestic costs, you can recover VAT on travel in countries where you do not have a VAT registration. Your entitlement to recover VAT is based on the rules in the country where the trip takes place. For example, VAT is generally not recoverable on hotel stays in Ireland, and this rule applies the same to an Irish company as it does to a company which is VAT registered in another country e.g. UK company. However, as the rules are based on where the trip takes place that means that the same Irish company could recover VAT on UK hotels. This is because VAT is recoverable on UK hotels (subject to UK VAT rules). By recovering the VAT incurred on trips when employees travel abroad for business you can reduce the cost of travel by between 5% and 25%. The mechanism for recovering foreign VAT is different to recovering domestic VAT but TravelPerk can help you with this process.
In order to recover VAT on business travel, you will need a valid VAT invoice in the name of your company. Without a VAT receipt, a refund is very unlikely.
This depends on the country in which the hotel is located. The VAT rules are different from country to country. TravelPerk can help you calculate the amount of VAT your business can recover on travel related costs.
Yes. You can reclaim all the VAT on fuel if your vehicle is used for business purposes.
