Duty Free Border Downtown | Galeries Lafayette Tax Free
Galeries Lafayette Tax Free
This Retail Outlet Centre operates the Tax Free shopping scheme known as “Tax Refund” where the sales tax, (known as VAT/TVA/IVA/BTW/MwSt), is repaid to you when you depart Europe for your home country.
The rebate system means that international visitors can buy goods at tax-free prices when shopping at the stores who participate in this scheme.
Tax rebate shopping could mean a saving of up to 15% or more on the price of the merchandise you buy. You must be a non-resident of the European Community and be returning to a non-EU country, to qualify for these discounts.
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.
