Tax Free Shopping in Ireland
Brown Thomas is proud to offer Planet Tax Free to our visiting customers.
PLANET TAX FREE
As a non-EU resident, when you spend over €75 in-store you are entitled to claim a refund on VAT or sales tax which is included in the price of the items you have just purchased. This also includes Irish nationals who are living permanently in non-EU countries.
If you are resident in England, Scotland or Wales, and wish to shop Tax Free, please refer to section in the box below as the rules for British shoppers are different. Residents from Northern Ireland are not eligible to shop Tax Free. For more information, please visit revenue.ie/en/vat/retail-export-scheme/index.aspx
4 Simple Steps To Claiming A Tax Refund:
1.Complete the Tax Free Form
The tax free form already shows the value of your purchase and your refund. It is very important that you fully complete this form with the following in English before returning it to Planet:
- • Your name
- • Your home address
- • Your passport number
- • The date you arrived in the EU
- • The date you are departing from the EU
- • Your own credit card number or alipay account that the refund will be paid to
- • Your signature
2. Get Customs Approval
All Tax Free refunds have to be approved by Customs.
If your Tax Free form has a sales value between €75 and €1,999.99 then the process is very simple. All up have to do is return your completed Tax Free form to Planet at the airport and they will take care of the Custom’s process on your behalf.
If your Tax Free form has a sales value of €2,000 or above then you must receive an EU Custom’s stamp on departure. At Irish airports, Customs can be contacted by simply picking up the Customs courtesy phone which is located next to the Planet desk in the departures lounge. A Customs official will come to you. Please have the item available for inspection along with your completed tax free form, the original sales receipt, and the payment method you used to purchase the item, eg. your credit card.
In other EU airports the Customs or VAT refund desk will be clearly signposted. Planet customer service agents in Dublin and Shannon airports are always happy to assist you with your Tax Free form and Customs. The process at the airport is very simple however please ensure to arrive a little earlier than usual, especially if you require Customs stamping.
3. Return Tax Free Form
Return your fully completed Tax Free form with your credit card or alipay details to receive the refund. In Ireland shoppers can return their forms to the Planet Tax Free desk in Shannon and Dublin airports. There are also Planet drop-off locations in Cork, Ireland West and all other regional airports.
