While visiting me in France my relative bought a second hand car, which he will take to Ukraine (non EU country) with him. The car was previously owned by a company and the selling price included VAT.How can he get the VAT back, given that he exports the car outside EU?
Your Friend will have to go to the French costums and fill out a form.
only the seller (merchant) can return the VAT back to you.
You relative must go back to the seller to get the VAT returned. Not all sellers retun the VAT.
Which papers he needs to obtain and where to be stamp at the border so that he can later give them to the seller to recover TVA?
You friend should contact the French costums because not all cars are detaxed. there are exceptions.
