  3. TAX Free shopping..

    Gotta warm this up again. Travel is now becoming more and more possible. So has anyone used the tax free shopping system post-brexit ?   Some shops offer the immediate refund for swiss citizens, so it should be the same for brits...   Can I buy an Ipad at say Media Markt and get the VAT back ? ( and yes, it will be taken back to the UK !! )   It's not about TAX fraud. Its general interest, as family will be coming over soon and they want to know what the score is...  
  4. Go one then, how many of you guys would smuggle Bacon and cheddar when travelling back from the UK ? From one day to another the EU is worried about contamination due to british pork and dairy products....   hmmmmm   I probably would try anyway...Can't get bacon here, and ALDI are selling more and more Irish cheddar. Its OK, but Colliers is better.....
  5. TAX Free shopping..

    Just a wild thought here... Brexit sucks, but mabe people can use it to their advantage...   I have dual nationality. When I am in the UK ( being a german ) can I purchase goods tax free ? When I am here in Germany ( being a brit ) can I purchase goods tax free ?   for example: Can I buy an iPad in Media Markt and get the VAT back ? When I am back in the UK, can I pop down to PC World and buy an iPad and get the tax back ?   Anyone else had such thoughts ?
