Zero-rating for export supply of goods – implementation of recent ECJ case law / evidence in non-commercial travel

The requirement of bookkeeping and documentary evidence for the zero-rating of export supplies of goods has been the subject of ongoing discussion in recent years. In its letter of 25 June 2020, the Federal Ministry of Finance declares that the decisions of the ECJ issued in this area in recent years are now to be applied. To this end, it is adapting the German administrative VAT guidelines accordingly. It is also taking this opportunity to make minor adjustments to the rules on the proof of export of goods carried in the personal luggage of travellers.
