In order to attract foreign tourists shopping, many countries will introduce tax refund services.The tax rate ranges from 6% to 20%, with a maximum of 20%, and the threshold is not too high. For example, in Germany, tax refunds can be made when shopping for 25 Euros (about 190 RMB).
“If you learned Alipay tax refund, shopping in many countries is equivalent to playing 15% off.! “Miss Ye, a European travel guide for a travel agency in Shanghai, said.
Miss Ye says, “We used to lead the team to go out and the tax rebate for tourists. There were at least 3-4 tax refunds in 10 out of 10 unsuccessful, because the previous tax refund was generally foreign currency cash or credit card. Some visitors felt that the process was too long to operate. Some of them are too late to queue because the cash withdrawal team is very long, and there are various reasons for the credit card tax refund tax return. Now we generally teach tourists to use Alipay tax rebate, basically can be successful." According to her According to statistics, the tour group she led led her to return an average of one or two thousand yuan per visitor.
It is understood that the most important way for Alipay's tax rebate is the tax rebate at the airport. There are currently 14 mainstream airports in Europe and 3 in Asia.At these airports, you only need to find a tax refund counter where staff will guide you to fill out the tax return and seal it. After the visitor filled in his Alipay account, the staff entered it in the background, and the tax would be refunded to my Alipay account on the spot. Moreover, the renminbi was saved from the exchange of foreign currency and Alipay did not charge any fees.
In shopping destinations Europe,There are also a small number of shops even support the use of Alipay directly to facilitate the tourists to "buy side back". When Chinese tourists open Alipay and sweep away the “Real-time Tax Refund Code” in the store, they can get the renminbi into the account Alipay through the collateral guarantee and then return the tax return to the tax refund counter at the airport.
According to statistics, China's tax refund for unpaid visitors to Europe last year was as high as nearly RMB 1 billion. Some netizens said that with the Alipay tax rebate, the overseas shopping tax rebates are no longer needed. Lost points.access:
