    Nice info on VAT refund. Will do a research on that. Thanks!
  • ^IIRC, there are at least 3 scenarios (bought in person, shipped to UK forwarder, and shipped to other UK address) and 2 styles (DIY where you deal directly with the store, and using a 3rd party service). In DIY, you get more back but not immediately. In 3rd party, you get less back since 3rd party has to have a cut, but you get the refund immediately at airport/departure.

    [oods you canít get a refund for
    You canít get a VAT refund for:

    mail order goods, including internet sales
    goods youíve already used in the EU, such as perfume
    service charges, eg hotel bills
    new or used cars
    goods worth more than £600 exported for business purposes
    goods to be exported as freight
    goods that need an export licence (except antiques)
    unmounted gemstones
    gold over 125g, 2.75 troy ounces or 10 tolas
    a boat you plan to sail to a destination outside the EU

    Also not all stores do vat refund and the stores that do, give you a vat refund form together with their receipt for claiming.

    When i was in spain last year, they required a min of 100 euros on the receipt to qualify for refund iirc. Some stores allow accumulation others do not, so ymmv on this.
