Tax-free goods

Shopping with no VAT: how to benefit from tax-free goods?

WHO IS ENTITLED TO TAX-FREE GOODS?

Leisure travellers whose usual place of residence is in a country outside the European Union are entitled to have VAT deducted from the purchases that they have made in France. The visitor concerned must be aged 16 or more and be visiting France for a period of less than 6 months.

PREPARE YOUR SHOPPING SPREE WELL

The purchases, of a touristic nature, must be made at a retailer that offers tax free shopping, on the same day in the same shop for an amount exceeding €175, inclusive of tax. The retailer then tells the buyer what they must do in order to claim back the VAT and gives them the sales slip for export. The buyer must show their passport to the retailer in the shop to prove their non-resident status.





A LAST PIECE OF ADVICE BEFORE LEAVING THE EU VIA FRANCE

Allow the necessary time for refund formalities to avoid stress on the day of departure. The visitor must take the sales slip for export to complete these formalities at customs before checking in baggage and before the end of the third month following the date of purchase.

Passengers who do not leave the European Union via France, and who travel via international rail can also claim the VAT back! All the details can be found on the dedicated page of the Ministry of Finance and Public Accounts.
