Customs Formalities for VAT refund

The buyer should show all goods bought and the relevant invoices to the Customs at the time of leaving from the EU territory.

The Customs office will scrutinize the invoices and after being confirmed that all the requirements are fulfilled they will endorse the invoices. This endorsement will work as a proof that the goods left the Community territory successfully.

The relevant Customs office in which the invoices will have to be presented for endorsement is the Customs of exit that belongs to the state where the EU non-resident traveller departs the EU territory for his country of origin. As for instance, a EU non-resident traveller bought goods in Italy and then visit Austria, the Austrian Customs office will be the authority to whom the invoices should be handed over for endorsement.
