In order to obtain the refund of VAT and tax on goods and services when you bring the purchased goods into your country of origin (not applicable to the EU member states), follow the simple steps below:
1. GET IT
Check the front of the store for Global Blue stamp or ask the staff if their store is a part of Tax free programme. When you find a perfect item to buy in City Center one, while making a purchase, do not forget to ask the sales assistant for the tax refund form (Global Blue Form).
2. STAMP IT
Show your Global Blue form, the original receipt and a personal document (passport or ID card) upon exiting the EU, so the customs officer can stamp your Global Blue form which proves you are entitled to tax refund.
3. CASH IT
Finally, present your stamped Global Blue form, the original receipt and a personal document (passport or ID card) at the authorized Global Blue system refund point, and your money will be paid out in cash.
