Don't just take our word for it
Customer Service really helped
I had some trouble initially working through the PieVAT software, but one of their Customer Service people, Maggie, gave excellent advice. With that input, the application process was fast and efficient.
One disappointing thing I learned was that not all the merchants I used were part of this system. I hope more shops learn how this system simplifies the process for their customers.
This was my first tax reclaim
This was my first tax reclaim. Purchased items in Norway and the retailer explained everything very clearly and gave link to pie app. Uploaded everything required and every step was very clear and logical. I did manage to forget an image (2 products on same receipt) and Maggie from Pie reached out within hours to help rectify. All approved immediately and funds on their way. Very impressed with what I believed would be a very drawn our painful process. Thank you for a great experience

Amazing response time
Response time was amazing in minutes. It's an agile system.I uploaded the wrong statement hence Maggie from Pie was on email talking to me I think it was a matter of a day for a claim to be processed by the Pie team. Excellent customer service. Thanks.
I really appreciated assistance from Maggie - she was very concrete in her responses and advice and assisted me with uploading documents in no time. Thanks a lot!
