Най-добре да попита във всеки един магазин в Америка (знаят за това). Аз исках да го направя от Канада, но трябваше да бъде една бележка за стока около 150-200 канадски долара ( аз нямах такава голяма покупка).
1.Global Refund (tel. 800/566-9828; www.globalrefund.com
) is the driving force behind the Value Added Tax refund system on the supplier side. It's their "Tax Free Shopping" sign that you should look for in the window of the retail stores. (The sign should be next to the Credit Card stickers near the front door advertising what cards the store takes.) If you want to receive your refund at the airport, you need to go to the refund booth when you are departing the country where you did your purchasing. Your best bet in this case is to get the stamps at customs and mail the refund tickets in. If you can not get a stamp at customs for all your purchases, call Global Refund at the number above for alternative methods to receive your refund. Also, the Global Refund Web site lists airports, train stations and border points where refund offices are located. In addition to the European Union, Global Refund has added some participating countries such as Argentina, Korea and Iceland to its list.
, refunds are easier to obtain. You need to spend a minimum of Canadian $200 (US$161) to qualify for refunds with individual purchases more than Canadian $50 (US$40). In Canada, however, lodging is included in their Goods and Services Tax, even camping fees and short-term rentals. (To qualify for the lodging refund, just stay less than a month and include the number of nights you stayed at a particular location. One caveat about Canada -- you need to show original receipts to receive your refund. Photocopies will not suffice. For detailed information on obtaining the proper forms for a Canadian refund and all other non-Canadian resident tax information, go the Canadian governments tax and revenue site at www.cra-arc.gc.ca/tax/nonresidents/visitors/menu-e.html
Passports are required to get the proper refund forms from retail clerks and hotel employees. And don't wear or use any of your purchases. They must be unused when you leave the country to receive your refund. Yes, customs will inspect your purchases and they will look thoroughly through all the items for which you have receipts. Some of the airports have drop boxes for VAT refunds making it easy to get the refund process in motion and out of your hands even before you leave the country.
2. Getting the VAT refunded involves telling the store clerk you're going to be asking for the VAT back (they'll give you
receipts and formsto carry with you) then filling out more forms at the airport
efore you even check in for your flight, you must
visit the local Customs office at the airportwith the receipts and the items you purchased—this is in case the officer wishes to inspect your purchases (which rarely happens). The Customs agent will stamp your receipt and give you further directions—usually, after going through check in and security, you head to another VAT refund desk inside the airport and deal with more paperwork there.
In some cases, they give you a refund on the spot. More often, the stamped receipt is sent back to the store and your reimbursement is credited against your credit card or sent to you by check. Either, way, it can take forever. The longest I've ever waited was 18 months for a few bucks back from some Irish Sweaters.
There are two ways around all this effort.
Many shops are now part of the "Tax Free Shopping" network(look for a sticker in the store window). These shops issue a check along with your invoice, which, after you have the invoice stamped at customs, you can redeem for cash directly at the Tax Free booth in the airport (usually near customs or the duty-free shop), or you can mail it back to the store in the envelope provided within 60 days for your refund. In some cases, the store takes care of all the hard work—you fill out the form on the spot and they mail it back, then reimburse your credit card.
You can also often
avoid the VAT by having your purchases shippeddirectly from the store, but this can get extremely pricey.
Опитах се да открия сумата, но не успях. Сигурно е някъде около тази в Канада.
Не е толкова просто, защото имат условия (една бележка или нещо друго). Преди години за България беше най-различни бележки, които можеха да се съберат.
