In short, what is a VAT refund?

The process of VAT refund in Romania involves the reimbursement of already paid VAT (value added tax), at the request of the companies, in situations where the amounts of VAT collected from sales are lower than those paid as result of purchases made. The refund of VAT can be requested by companies through tax returns 300 or 318, from the Romanian State Budget.
