In order to get VAT refunds on foreign purchases, the Neste invoice needs to be supplemented with the original foreign refueling receipts stating the share of the VAT. Therefore it is imperative to save the refueling receipts, and attach them to the application to the tax authorities.
In addition to the Preem stations in Sweden, this also applies to Neste stations in the Baltic Countries. The receipts from fuel vending machines of the Statoil Truck stations do not meet the present reporting requirements of the tax authorities. The receipts are presently still viable for VAT refund, however Neste cannot guarantee their approval in the future.
