Today in our consultancy we personally take care that our clients get the necessary documentation for each process. In this case, to get the VAT refund from the German tax offices, what we will need first of all is:

  1. Your  accountant needs to make the VAT report in which he/she will introduce in the necessary boxes to get VAT refunded.
  2. fIn the simplest cases where your company is registered in the USA or UK, you will usually have opened a transferwise (WISE) account, in the negative case, you’ll need to open it.
  3. After bank account verification, you can get a certificate needed.

Go to “manage” >”account details >EU Account details > Get proof of account details and you can download a certificate there.
