We guarantee your refund in regards to how much and when it will be paid. Always.
We reduce administrative work and work hard to apply paperless services consistently through all the markets. Already today we avoid paper in our daily office routines and where possible.
Technology enables quicker issuing, availability of all information and therefore less waiting in every step of the process.
We guarantee the refund, apply transparent and reasonable charges and as a result offer the best deals.
The tax Free platform allows for additional services to be integrated and thus providing more value.
Cross Border Service
This service applies flat fees, refunds up to full VAT and - where available - connects to digital validation services.
Our system is built to have full control over the transaction increasing security and fraud prevention.
Less is More
Technology reduces admin cost and eliminates data processing to near zero contributing to a higher refund.

Frequently Asked Questions
Tax Free is applicable to goods purchased by non-EU residents (called tourists) in private travel.
Ask for a Tax Free form in the shop. Then export the goods by obtaining a customs stamp. Return the stamped form to Digital Tax Free and the refund will be paid out to your account.
Refund is the amount paid to the tourist and is the VAT amount minus service fee.
The refund is paid out after the Tax Free form has been provided back to Digital Tax Free. The refund can be paid to a credit card or bank account, other refund options will follow. We avoid cash refunds as agents and especially airports are applying high fees to an inconvenient service which is often exposed to long waiting lines.
All taxable goods you buy and export in your personal luggage. Goods should be sealed and unused
Tax Free rules are a set of rules in regards to minimum purchase amount, export time limit and other criteria but differ in each country.
You have to export the goods and in order to document the export need to obtain a customs stamp. Without customs stamp the Tax Free form is not valid and the refund cannot be paid.
The Tax Free form is the basis for your export transaction. The form needs to be completed in the shop, must contain shop information (name, address, VAT number) and has to be completed with your information (name, address, passport number). The original shop receipt is important, must be attached to the form and also returned with the form to Digital Tax Free to obtain your refund. (in case you need a receipt for guarantee reasons then ask in the shop to issue a receipt copy).
Digital Tax Free applies an administration fee for handling your Tax Free form therefore does not always return the full VAT amount. Charges may be applicable for refund transfers. Cash refunds, if available, are subject to cash fees and follow the cost associated with the refund location (airport, other exit point or city) and agent fees. In any case will the amounts charged be listed and transparently communicated. You will know at any time how much you are to get and the service fee charged.
We guarantee the refund amount is transparently communicated and paid according to your preferences in reasonable time. Please note: only if we have received your validly stamped Tax Free form can we initiate the transaction and pay out to your account.
