How do I get the TVA back after buying property in France?
If you are buying a sale and leaseback property, the developer will organise the TVA (French VAT) rebate so you only pay the net price and have no paper work.
If you create your own commercial lease then you can either reclaim the TVA each time you make a stage payment or wait until you have paid the full price and reclaim the total TVA in one claim. These claims are usually processed in 2 or 3 months.
