How is the provisional refund paid out to me?
Payment of the provisional refund
If the request for a provisional refund is submitted before 1 December preceeding the year for which you would like to receive the refund, you will receive the first payment of the provisional refund in mid January. You will then receive the amount of the provisional refund in 12 monthly instalments.
If the request is submitted later, you will receive the first payment of the refund approximately one month after the request is submitted. The amount of the provisional refund will then be paid out over the remaining number of months in the year.
Payment in instalments shall only apply if the monthly amount is € 23 or more. If the monthly amount is less than this, payment will be made in one amount.
