Export refunds

Export Refunds are listed below.
These refunds (paid to the EU exporter) offset the difference between European and world prices, to guarantee balanced, competitive prices for EU goods put on the market.
The Commission considers factors such as more advantageous marketing or transport costs, as well as international agreements when establishing refund rates. In this sense, the refund system is based around demand.
Refund values are the same for the entire EU, but may differ depending on destination, when required by market conditions. Refunds are paid subject to proof that products originate from within the EU and have been exported to a non-EU market.
