Introduction of the tax free system in Russia

26.12.2017

The tax free system will primarily work in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Sochi.

At the initial stage, about 40 stores will operate under the tax free system, and VAT refund to foreigners will apply to all categories of goods, including food products. The minimum purchase amount for the return of VAT is 10.000 rubles, and it must be made at a retail outlet connected to the tax free system - this will be indicated by special stickers on the shop-window.

Officially, the system will start working a month after the publication of the law, and by October 1, 2018, there will be a temporary procedure for the provision of documents.
