Either directive 2008/09/EC, former 8th directive or directive 86/560/EEC, also known as the 13th directive, will apply depending if your company is EU or non-EU registered. Foreign VAT Refunds can be claimed by submitting a refund application through an electronic portal provided by their own tax authority to the EU Member State; the Member State of establishment.
Every year, companies lose around €10 billion in unrecovered foreign VAT worldwide. It seems Foreign VAT Refund was mostly unheard of in Malta, with very few companies making use of Directive 2008/09/EC which gives the right to EU companies to claim back the VAT incurred in other EU Countries.
