Re: Italian VAT refund

Quote:

In his defence: It is very obvious that he refers to the VAT when saying "the full 24%" even so since he mentions 24% VAT in the same post.
Yes, exactly. I am referring to the full VAT amount, not the 24% of the final price. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

you risk paying Swiss import taxes without getting the (full) hoped-for refund.
So basically, after Global Blue Fees you get 10% back, but then you have to pay 7.7% VAT tax in Switzerland. The net amount is 2.3%. For a purchase of 1240 EUR (1000 EUR + 24% VAT), this would mean that you get back 23 EUR. Is it really worth it?
