TAX-FREE Service of VARIA
The VARIA TAX-FREE Service provides the opportunity for costumers from countries outside the European Union to easily get a refund of the value-added tax paid on goods purchased in our store.
Furthermore, corporate customers from the European Union have the opportunity to complete their purchase free of tax already during the ordering process.
You only need a valid VAT identification number (VAT ID) and the address corresponding to your order.
During your purchase in one of our online shops, after you entered the required data or logged in, your VAT ID will be checked for validity. Your customer account settings will then be changed accordingly.
Important note: Order corrections for VAT refunds are only possible until the 19th of the following month.
For questions concerning your purchase, please contact one of our service team members. They will arrange for an immediate refund of the value-added tax.
In case you want to export delivered goods to countries outside the European Union yourself, you may simply use our TAX-FREE Service.
In order to get the value added tax refunded after returning to your home country, you simply have to take the following steps:
On delivery of the goods, you will receive a VAT invoice.
When you are leaving the country and travel back home or continue your travel to other countries, you have to present the purchased goods, the original invoice and your passport to customs, where the tax invoice issued by VARIA will be stamped.
Please send your VARIA invoice stamped by the customs authorities together with the completed export and procurer certificate by mail to:
VARIA System GmbH
- TAX-FREE -
Instead of the export and procurer certificate you can also send a copy of your passport (or trading license for companies) together with the stamped invoice.
Please make sure to also specify your bank account details in order to get the value added tax refunded.
After having received and checked your documents, we will remit the tax amount to your account immediately or credit it to you on request.
