Re: Tax tip Shopping in Germany

Tom - you get the 19% tax (VAT) back.

The amount you get back on the price paid is different

19 if you use the green "Ausfuhrschein" form that is handed out in most shops...
Not the blue tax free

;-)
and only the 7.x% VAT on food items...

Great that you want to share but as mentioned, there's a tonne of stuff on this on EF already.

You also need to be careful with your friendly advice and tips, as while you can take as much as you want out, there are limits on what you bring into CHF, beyond the 300 CHF...
