In many markets, governments waive VAT/GST for goods bought by international travellers to make shopping more appealing to foreign visitors.
Tax Free Shopping offers international shoppers an attractive price reduction, by allowing them to reclaim the VAT after they export the goods. Global Blue manages each tax refund transaction for its retailer partners, so they can forget about the administration and focus on selling.
