Reclaiming Your VAT

Reclaim the VAT on your Euromoney Training Courses in the UK

Why am I being charged VAT?
The EU VAT Directive stipulates that all training and educational courses that are provided in the UK must include a VAT charge on payment.  

Can I reclaim my VAT back?
Overseas delegates who attend our courses in the UK are eligible to claim their VAT back once it has been paid.    

How can I claim the VAT back paid on a course?
There are two ways in which you can claim back VAT back from the UK.

Option 1 - Directly through HM Revenue and Customs

The most cost-efficient way is to claim back VAT directly from the UK Tax Authority (HMRC) by completing the following form. 
For European clients, please refer to form VAT 65
All other clients, please refer to form VAT 65A.

Option 2 - Through our Recommended VAT Reclaim Service – VAT IT
The specific rules for VAT reclaim will vary according to the laws of your country of residence. This can be complicated and time-consuming. 

Euromoney have an exclusive partnership with VAT IT, specialists in international VAT reclaim.  VAT IT will review, process and submit your VAT refund on your behalf. 

VAT IT will charge a percentage of the VAT refund if/when it is successful. 

If you want to find out more about this service, please email your details to:  

You may also be able to claim back your VAT against courses taking place outside of the UK, and we would recommend contacting VAT IT, our specialist partner, to discuss how to do this.
