You know your customer has exported his/her goods if there is a customs stamp on our tax-free form or on the receipt from your store .
When your customer goes to customs for a stamp, they check wether your customer is eligible for a VAT refund. Your customer is eligible for a VAT refund if they:
- Can show their purchase receipt
- Can show the goods bought in your store
- Can prove they live outside the EU (passport/ visa check)
- Can prove they are leaving the EU (boarding-pass check)
When all these requirements have been met, your customer receives the customs stamp and you are allowed by the tax administration to process his VAT refund request.
