Changes to the Local Purchase Orders (Mehrwertsteuer (MwSt) Form)
Due to the drawdown of BFG, all new BFG Local Purchase Orders (MwSt Forms) will only be valid for 1 month, as all forms must be accounted for upon closure. This new rule came into effect from 1st February 2019 and does not affect any forms issued prior to February 2019 with a 6-month validity.
Your unused or expired forms can be renewed for free prior to the expiry date. All unused forms must be returned to your Central Official Procurement Agency (MwSt Office) before you leave Germany.
You are still able to purchase up to 5 forms at any one time. Please note that this applies to everyone in BFG.
