If you are stationed at a Military Base within the EU, you might be eligible to shop tax-free (ask your supervisor if you are eligible and what the requirements are). We partner with to provide you this reimbursement service.
Register your details at and take these steps to reclaim your VAT:
  1. At moment of purchase, request for a ‘Customs Tax Invoice’;
  2. Have the office at your Military Base stamp the ‘Customs Tax Invoice’ for approval;
  3. Send your stamped ‘Customs Tax Invoice’ with your purchase receipt and a copy of your military ID-card to will take care of the rest and contact you for reimbursement details.

Please note:
  • Only goods with a minimum purchase amount of €45 including VAT per item are eligible for reimbursement. Not all goods are eligible; your Military Base can give you the precise details.
  • Only stores with a special permit can give out ‘Customs Tax Invoices’. Please inform yourself whether the store you would like to visit has such a permit.
