Tax Free System (FL)

The tax-free system offers a simple way for our international customers to reclaim VAT. As in Switzerland, the minimum purchase amount in Liechtenstein is CHF 300 net per day and store. There are two further conditions: You must be domiciled abroad and the goods must be exported within 30 days.

When you leave Switzerland you are obliged to present the goods to a customs officer in order to receive the valid customs stamp you require for a reclaim.

Customers can choose from a number of ways to receive their VAT reimbursement: refunds are either paid out in cash at the nearest refund office or are offered in the form of a credit to your credit card. Alternatively, your refund can be made by bank transfer.

Tax Free (A)

Customers who do not reside within the EU are entitled to reimbursement of the Austrian Value Added Tax which is included in the purchase price. Minimum invoice amount: EUR 75.01.

Please note:

You must export the goods from the EU within three months.

If you are leaving Austria by road, form U34, the purchased goods and the invoice must be presented to a customs official at an external EU border, which can also be in Bulgaria, Hungary, Italy, Poland and Slovenia, etc., for example. The export is confirmed when the form is stamped.

If you are leaving Austria by air, please make sure that a customs official stamps the form at the airport you are using before you check in. In this case we recommend that you do not wait until a customs official arrives – you should actively seek out an official yourself.

This tax free export arrangement does not apply to tourists from Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden or the United Kingdom.
