駐在員は"Tax-free"が出来るか否か

以下EUの公式サイトを確認し、スタンプがもらえるかドバイに行く時トライしてみた

 

If you are a visitor to the EU and are about to leave EU territory to go home or to some other place outside the EU, you may be able to buy goods free of VAT.

 

Who is a ‘visitor’?
A ‘visitor’ is any person who permanently or habitually lives in a country outside the EU. Your address as shown in your passport or other identity document will be taken as the place where you permanently or habitually live.

In some countries, you may also qualify as a ‘visitor’ if you are living in an EU country for a defined period of time for a specific purpose, but your permanent home is outside the EU and you are not intending to return to the EU in the immediate future. EU citizens permanently living in non-EU countries are also eligible for the VAT refund.

Example: Paul is a Belgian citizen but lives permanently in Canada. Once a year, he returns to Belgium to visit his parents. Paul is a ‘visitor’ and can apply for a refund on a basis of his Canadian residence card.

ドイツでの就労ビザ及び滞在期間が3ヶ月を超えていることを指摘され、空港でスタンプは押せないと言われた

 

駐在を終えて申請しても、購入したものを見せるのは出来ないし、購入してから期間が経ち過ぎているので無理ということで、黒のスタンプを書類に押されてもう当該物品等では申請できなくなった

 

駐在員は、VATのtax Returnは出来ないことを確認した
