Refundit ("Refundit", "Company", "we" or "us") welcomes you to the Refundit mobile application ("App"). The App provides you with an easy and fully digital way to receive refunds for purchases you made of certain goods in countries where the Refundit service is available (respectively, "VAT Refunds" and the "Services"). For a list of supported countries please see refundit.tax/countries.html. Users of our App ("User" or "you") may only use the App in accordance with the terms and conditions hereunder.
The Refundit service is only offered for non-EU residents, in specific countries (as per the list in refundit.tax/countries.html), and within those countries in
specific exit points (airports, sea ports, etc.). The service can only accept receipts from those specific
countries and can only handle passengers leaving the EU directly to a non-EU destination. Receipts from
nonparticipating countries will be automatically rejected without further notice, as well as passengers
leaving the EU through non-supported exit points.
During your visit, while making purchases, you need to scan each receipt into the app, while still at the store, making sure the invoice is not associated with another tax-free service (meaning it is not stamped with the words "Tax Free", marked with "Tax Free stickers", etc.).
Once you finish your purchases, and at least 8 hours prior to the planned departure time of your outbound flight, you need to upload the VAT refund request, and provide us some additional information and documentation, such as a picture of your outbound boarding pass and passport and submit the request. Once a request is submitted, we will submit it on your behalf to the relevant tax & customs authorities and will do our utmost so that your refund request is approved. Please note that in order to use the app, you will need to check in online to your flight.
"VAT refunds" - payments paid to you by the company in the sum of the vat paid by you for purchases of
eligible goods made in supported countries, minus a 9% service fee, and subject to the terms stipulated
herein. Any vat refund that you may receive from Refundit by using the services constitutes an actual vat
refund from tax authorities.
Non-affiliation - Refundit is representing you in requesting the VAT refund, helps you in facilitating the refund request and is not affiliated with any tax authority. Confidentiality of information - all your information is kept strictly confidential. Any information you provide us by using the services, which is not required for the purpose of obtaining an approval of the VAT refund request, will not be transferred to any tax authority.
Non-guarantee - VAT refunds are provided at the sole discretion of the tax and/or customs authorities of the country from which you depart the EU, and we do not guarantee that you will be provided with the vat refund or any part thereof. The terms for qualifying for vat refunds are detailed in each country’s government and/or other website, so please read them carefully.
Usage - the app and the services (as defined below) are intended for use solely by individuals who reside in a non-EU country, be they EU or non-EU citizens. Individuals who reside in the EU are prohibited from using our app and/or services.
Communication - by using the app, you hereby agree and acknowledge that we may contact you by any means of communications that you may provide us with, such as e-mail and telephone, for the purpose of receiving your suggestions, comments and feedback with respect to the app and services. Such communications may include offers to participate in our surveys, study groups, interviews, etc. We thank you for your cooperation.
