Re: possible to claim VAT on online purchases?

I'm sorry I don't understand what you mean by "If you prove you have exported the item". It was an expensive item. But I simply bought it as a regular consumer through an online website. The VAT paid was high, so it would be good to be able to get back the monies the next time I leave Switzerland. Would appreciate if you could clarify.
You paid 8%. VAT in CH, if you take it to Europe you can legally reclaim the 8% Swiss Tax but will be liable to the considerably higher VAT of the country your entering.

So can you avoid paying tax anywhere? Probably not legally in Europe other than Monaco, not sure about VAT through.
