Claim Process
Clients provide UVS with their original invoices, whether they are sent to us or if UVS retrieves them onsite at the client location; travel expense reports, tax ID information, proper documentation, individual country questionnaires and signed claim forms where applicable are all submitted to UVS. After the claim has been processed and submitted to the respective Tax Authority, when the VAT has been refunded and sent to UVS, we deduct our negotiated fee and send your company the balance amount.
