Re: VAT returns on a L120 Days short stay B permit

According Art. 19a VZAE the 120-permit is a special permit L.

This assumes the holder of this permit is a Swiss resident.

The rules for a VAT free purchase for tourists are listed here:

An important condition is that the purchaser must not have its residency in Switzerland. And be aware that if the shop does not offer tax free shopping there will be no tax refund.

The save assumption would be to purchase the relevant goods only after deregistraiton and ask the Federal Tax Administration before hand about eligibility. Contact details can be found in the above link.
