Only members can see names and photos Getting sales tax back at the border with France. Any experiences?Aug 15, 11 17:23   According to this article, it is possible to get taxes back for purchases made in other countries, upon entering Switzerland (and then, depending on the cost of the item, you may have to pay Swiss taxes, which are lower).  http://fr.comparis.ch/comparis/press/sparnews/artikel/2011/01/mehrwertsteuer_zurueckfordern.aspx Has anyone done it at the border with Ferney for example? What are the practicalities to be aware of? Should I fill out forms?  I just got some speakers at Amazon France, had them sent to a friend`s house in Ferney; and if I can get the sales tax back, the final price woudl be almost half than at Fnac in Switzerland :-) Please share your thoughts or experiences. Thanks.    The text you are quoting:   According to this article, it is possible to get taxes back for purchases made in other countries, upon entering Switzerland (and then, depending on the cost of the item, you may have to pay Swiss taxes, which are lower).  http://fr.comparis.ch/comparis/press/sparnews/artikel/2011/01/mehrwertsteuer_zurueckfordern.aspx Has anyone done it at the border with Ferney for example?

Post 1Aug 15, 11 19:26 Two years ago, I was doing the other way CH-FR. I got the tax refund at the Swiss border in the office called `Change`. They reimboursed me the tax for everything exceeding 300 CHF, so consequently they do not return anything if the price of your goods does not exceed 300 CHF.

Post 4 Hi, in the case of your speakers, you will not get the VAT reimbursed, sorry! :- ) In general, you can get VAT reimbursed whenever you buy something in a country different from the one where you are a resident, but only if you buy for an amount above a certain amount (this changes from one country to another) in only one shop, in only one day. Here is a link to the minimum amount in each country: http://www.global-blue.com/traveller-services/tax-free-shopping/refund-calculator/ Then, to shop taxfree you: - ask the shop to fill in a form - then, when you cross the border out from the country where you bought the stuff, you get the form stamped by the customs - then you go to a tax free refund point (there is one at the Geneva airport it is the American Express) or you get your refund through your credit card The reason why in your case this does not work is that you got the goods shipped to your friend in France, from amazon.fr so they were not officially exported to switzerland. Hope this helps..
