VAT-refund for Taiwanese and German companies
The German Federal Ministry of Finance has confirmed reciprocity in the input tax refund (VAT refund/"Vorsteuer-Vergütung") procedure as of July 1, 2010. Accordingly, German companies without residence and turn over in Taiwan are entitled to claim VAT-refund for services and goods acquired in Taiwan. Vice versa, the same applies for Taiwanese companies in Germany.
