As a non-EU established company, you can recover, subject to substantive and formal conditions, the French VAT incurred during the Paris 2024 Olympics via the “13th Directive” procedure.

The French VAT refund claim must compulsorily be submitted by a tax representative that must be a French company, who will perform all the formalities on your behalf.

For the French VAT incurred in 2024, the claim must be filed on the 30th of June 2025 at the latest.

In our capacity of French tax representative, we assist our clients with their VAT recovery:

  • Review of the invoices with French VAT,
  • Determination of the VAT amount to be claimed back,
  • Preparation of the French VAT refund claims,

Filing and following-up with the French tax administration.
