Georgia Tax Free Shopping
The Country of Georgia has now introduced the tax-free shopping system known as 'Tax-Refund Shopping' for foreign visitors. This means that international travellers departing the country can now reclaim the Value-added tax (VAT) and Goods and Services Tax (GST) on goods personally exported. Visitors will be required to reclaim these refunds through a recognised refund company at the airport.
Companies operating the “Tax Refund – Sales Tax Rebate Scheme” for tourists include: Global Blue, Tax Free Worldwide, UK Tax Refund, TaxFree Shopping Ltd, Louisana Tax Free, FEXCO, GB taxfree, TaxBack, VatFree, Travel Tax Free and Global Refund. There are some restrictions as to what and where you can buy, but your tax free retailer will be able to assist you with the regulations. Many luxury stores throughout Europe, Asia and beyond offer this scheme, enabling you to save by buying at discount prices and recovering the local tax.
