Apple VAT refund for companies

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Apple is doing all kinds of funny things with VAT. iTunes invoices do not have a VAT even though they should, instead digital purchases like the membership to Apple Developer programs are billed with Irish VAT of 23%.

For companies selling cross boarder to other European companies this quite unusual. Normally, any vendor will allow you to register your VAT ID and then bill you without VAT. Apple thinks differently. You have to call them for a refund after every purchase. However, calling them doesn't work. Nobody understands what you want and they keep forwarding your call until you give up (believe me, I tried).

The solution:

  1. Make your purchase
  2. Send your VAT ID and your Invoice/Order number to vat.refunds@apple.com and request a refund

Done.
