no refund of taxes on private exports by customer

Now and than we get customers sending us export papers for goods they had received from us to German addresses, asking for VAT refund.

We have to inform that it is legally NOT possible to claim VAT back for private exports of parts for transport vehicles such as cars and motorcycles

Below the flyer from the German Ministry of Finance relative to VAT reclaims in non-commercial travel from August 2014 based on Umsatzsteuergesetz 6 Ausfuhrlieferung, insbesondere Absatz 3 Nr. 1 und 2. 

It reads "goods for use in private means of transport (such as cars, boats, aircraft) ... parts for motor vehicles ... are excluded from Tax reclaim during non-commercial travel"
