Yes, you can! When you shop in the UK, you pay a sales tax (VAT) on most goods. If you are resident outside the EU, you are entitled to reclaim the VAT on most items purchased and taken home. In the UK the current VAT rate is 20% which equates to 16.67% of the sales price. You will need to pay full price and then claim the tax back.
Our Tax-Free Shopping service is operated by GB Tax Free. GB Tax Free charge an administration fee for organising the Tax Refund which is 2.67% of the selling price and capped at £250. A handling fee may apply to cash refunds. Refunds are given subject to meeting HMRC regulations and Tax Free terms and conditions.
You can use the same credit card to apply for the refund and the refund will be paid within 10-14 days of lodging the application at UK customs so you won't be out of pocket.
