France Lowers Threshold For Tourist VAT Refunds

by Ulrika Lomas, Tax-News.com, Brussels

22 September 2020


France has cut the amount that non-EU tourists must spend to claim back the VAT on their purchases.

Previously, VAT refunds would be available for those spending more than EUR175. Under the change, VAT refunds will be available where a non-EU taxpayer purchases goods for EUR100.01 or more from participating retailers, subject to compliance with the other requirements.

The change was introduced in Order of July 23, 2020, published in the French Official Gazette on September 17, 2020.
