Re: Things to avoid doing when claiming back German MWSt

So this seems inconsistent with the idea of crossing the border straight away. I have to cross into Switzerland, then come back another time to get the money back? Seems odd, and i know that the one time, many years ago, when I did it I certainly went back to the shop first before crossing the border.
Getting the refund and exporting goods are actually two different things, surely they are connected but they are separate issues. You can't declare to export something and than just drive back into the country. If it would be that easy many Swiss would do shopping for all their German friends.
