How to recover the V.A.T. for certain fees ?

In accordance to European legislation, any market or tradeshow organizer is required to charge a 20,00% state tax on any service or product rendered (in France it is known by the acronym TVA).

You may be able to recover the VAT for:

→ Stand rental
→ Installation of your stand
→ Several stand amenities (water, electricity, furniture, decoration, telephone lines, etc.)
→ Stand security and cleaning services
→ Invitation letters, accreditations, etc…

You won’t be able to recover the TVA for certain fees:

→ Car fees
→ Restaurant fees
→ Hotel fees

COMPANIES BASED IN A EU COUNTRY can recover the French VAT by providing a certificate justifying that they are subject to other VAT taxes in their own country.
