Re: Things to avoid doing when claiming back German MWSt

To contradict Rob1 ... if you buy stuff in Karstadt (department store) in Lorrach, they give you a "Global Blue" tax form which says "no cash refund in store".

What you can do is get it from the Global Blue refund office in Badischer Bahnhof, but if you do that you lose loads of money (as they take 50% as commission, and convert it from EUR to CHF at their own rate).

What you should do is ignore all those instructions on the form, take it back to Karstadt at the same desk where you got it from, and they give you the full cash back.

I am going to try this!
