Our #Thailand #Bangkok Travel Trip (Ending #HowToRefundTax)
We think everybody know Thailand is a shopping heaven so a lot of people when travel at Thailand will buy a lot of goods. Did you know that in Thailand as long as you purchase the specified amount at the designated store, you can refund the tax. So now, follow our step to know how to refund the tax, when you purchase above 2000 baht you can refund the tax. We will separate the two parts to make it easier for you to understand.
Who can claim VAT refunds?
– A non Thai resident who has been in Thailand less than 180 days in one year.
– A non Thai resident who is not a crew member of an airline.
– A non Thai resident who departs Thailand by air from an International airport.
VAT refunds only apply to goods taken out of Thailand within 60 days from the date of purchase.
At the shop:
Step1: You must purchase above 💲💲💲2000 baht (VAT included) at the designated store at the same day.
Note: you can combine the receipt at the same shop and at same day for total 2000 baht.
Step 2: Ask the store and show your passport and original receipt and fill the VAT Refund Form (P.P 10 Form) where your purchase your commodity. For example like we purchases at Tokyu Department Store, for 2 items at the same day total is above 2000 baht so we can do the refund tax at there.
Step 3: (REMEMBER) Must keep the VAT Refund Form and ORIGINAL RECEIPT.
At the airport:
Step 1: When arrived the airport you must go to ＂Customs Inspection For VAT Refund＂to show your VAT Refund Form + ORIGINAL RECEIPT+ Passport + Commodity to let them stamp. It is very very very important because WITHOUT THE CUSTOMS STAMP YOU CAN NOT REFUND THE MONEY. Sometime some officers will ask you to shows your commodity so is better bringing your commodity. And other people also can’t to line up for you. For whose flight same as us is at Suvarnabhumi Airport you can direct go to level 4 and Gate10, Customs Inspection For VAT Refund the just beside it.
Step 2: Check in and passport control.
Step 3: After Immigration counter , it got two ＂VAT Refund For Tourist Office ＂, one is on your right hand side and one on your left hand side.
Step 4: At the ＂VAT Refund For Tourist＂ you just give them your VAT Refund Form with CUSTOMS STAMP and passport and they will refund the cash to you. After that you can go to shopping again. Just a small tips, sometime got a lot of peoples line up for refund tax so after you refund the tax you just go to buy buy buy🛍🛍🛍 otherwise you flight fly fly fly🛫🛫🛫 and you will cry cry cry😭😭😭.
