Returning goods to France - VAT previously reclaimed

OK. I bought some goods from France, brought it to Switzerland and reclaimed VAT (no CH VAT to pay). Now, I want to return the goods to the store. What procedure is required to do this given I reclaimed the FR VAT?

You paid initially the price including VAT
The shop then gave you back the VAT, and will have removed that amount from their VAT return.

My guess is that if you take it back, they just refund you the non-VAT price. I doubt you need to do anything. Not sure what you'd do if you were stopped on your way back to France though.

Nothing to do for you, store will refund you the remaining amount since you already got the VAT.
