VAT Reclamation

If you are a visitor to the UK and you normally live outside of the EU, you may be able to get a refund of the VAT paid with the ‘VAT retail export scheme’. Please note that in order to qualify, goods must be exported from the EU within three months of purchase. If you wish to take advantage of this scheme, please request a tax-free shopping form from us and present it with the goods when you pass through UK customs. They will inspect the goods and send us the completed form within three months, at which point your VAT will be refunded. We charge a £5.00 administration fee for this service.
