11.3. Refund of VAT to Non-Residents

Uruguay generally allows for the deduction of input VAT to offset output VAT for non-resident with an establishment registered for VAT in Uruguay. Excess input VAT is carried forward to offset output VAT in subsequent periods. Refunds are generally not provided unless related to input VAT on exports.

Non-residents not registered for VAT in Uruguay are not eligible for refunds.
