tax free with no form from the store - possible?

Hi, we've made a purchase today for an amount of ~400 CHF and the store did not have a tax free form, i.e. said that they don't do the tax free form. These are shoes for my brother who is leaving on Sunday. Is that still possible for him to claim tax free? I cannot find any forms that we could DIY. Thanks!

It's the shop who pays VAT back. If they don't do it, they don't.

You want the Swiss VAT back? Is there even a country, who's VAT is lower than the Swiss one?
You can not get one VAT back and not pay the other.

PS: He better not make them look too new in his luggage. Fr. 400.00 could be more than he's allowed to take into the next country. LOL.

A VAT refund is not mandatory, if the store says they don't do it, than it is end of story and DIY is not possible.
