VAT EXEMPT CUSTOMERS VISITING THE UK
If you are visiting the UK and are wish to return to your country of residence with goods you have purchased whilst on your visit, you are entitled to a purchase tax refund (VAT 20%) on any taxable goods.
The purchase tax (VAT 20%) is chargeable at the point of purchase and refundable when the goods are taken from the UK.
The 407 form is presented to the customs official at the point of exit from the UK.Once the form has been approved and stamped by customs (they may wish to see the goods & receipt) return the stamped form directly to us (via post). We then refund the VAT element of the purchase directly to you (as a credit card refund).
Some smaller UK airports & ports do not have a full time customs officer. in this instance there will be a post box in which you will be able to leave the 407 form, the customs officer will stamp the form and return it directly to us. We will refund the VAT element of your purchase directly onto your credit card.
If you do not get the form stamped (or leave it for the customs officer to stamp) on your exit from the country we cannot refund the purchase tax.
All our stores carry the 407 form , it is completed in a matter of minutes at the point of sale.
We do not charge an administration fee for operating this service.
