    Hello,

    I am hoping if some one could help me with some information on VAT returns. I have come to UK for a vacation and would be going to Paris for three days and my girlfriend wants to do some shopping there, my question is that if she buys an expensive bag or shoes from Paris can I get a VAT refund from Paris some where or would London Heathrow airport VAT returns counter refund my VAT paid receipts?

    I am not an expert on VAT or taxes but from what I know you get your VAT returns from the port where you leave the EU. Your port of leaving the EU is going to be London Heathrow so that is where you get your VAT returns. Make sure you have the product with you at the counter and is brand new not used.

    Have a nice vacation :)
