Can I claim back VAT if I'm leaving the UK?

You can sometimes get VAT refunds on goods bought in the UK if you:

  • Visit the UK but live outside the EU and are going back home
  • Are an EU resident leaving the EU for 12 months or more
  • Are a non-EU resident but work or study in the UK and are leaving the EU for 12 months or more
