WEX Europe Services, owner of the Esso Card, has announced that its customers could receive VAT and excise duty reimbursements in two weeks – rather than months – after partnering with specialist VAT reclaim partner, ATS.
Available to Esso Card fuel card customers, the new system helps customers manage their VAT reclaim and covers fuel card purchases across Europe.
ATS can submit and manage claims on WEX Europe Services customers’ behalf, and customers can check on the status of their claim by logging in to ATS’s web portal.
Esso Card customers will only be charged a fee on successful claims; where claims are unsuccessful, there is no fee.
WEX Europe’s commercial and marketing director Peter Dore said: “We believe that procurement departments play a pivotal role in any fleet business by helping them to manage expenses, like VAT.
“We recognise there are easier ways to streamline the process of VAT reclaim, and our partnership with ATS can help our customers achieve that. We are delighted to be supporting this initiative.”
