Re: Italian VAT refund

Most of the shops where I make my purchases, automatically fill in the Global Blue Tax Refund form. By using this company, for a VAT of 24% (Greece), you get back just 10%, which means they pocket more than half the refund. On top of that,you have to pay 3 Euros per form to get the money in cash, otherwise you risk not being reimbursed.
The advantage is that you do not need to go back to the shop you made the purchase. But if going back to the shop is not an issue, is there a way to get a simple form to fill in and get the stamp and then go back to the shop and claim back the full 24%?
