How to get a tax refund

More languages available here :

Go shopping

When paying for your purchases, ask the salesperson for a VAT refund form. They will ask to see your passport (or identity card for Swiss customers) and will then give you a prepaid SolPay envelope.

Get a stamp

You have three months from the end of the month during which you made your purchase(s) to have your refund form stamped when you leave the European Union at the end of your trip. You have 21 days for advance refunds. 

If you are leaving Europe from France, head to a PABLO kiosk and follow the instructions on the screen to scan your form. If you have any problems with the kiosk, speak with the customs office.

If you are leaving Europe from another country, go directly to customs to get your refund form stamped.

No stamp = No refund.

Send form(s)

You will then need to send us the form(s) stamped by customs (or PABLO) in one of our prepaid envelopes or use the following address:

SolPay
11/13 Chemin de l’Industrie
Canéopole
06110 Le Cannet
FRANCE

If you want to receive your refund in cash, go to one of our refund partner offices.

Receive refund

If you have correctly followed the previous steps, you will receive your refund within six weeks* from the date your VAT refund form was stamped.
