About tax refund
·What is overseas shopping tax refund?
Overseas shopping tax refund is the policy to refund consumption tax in line with regulations which is valid when you buy carry-on goods over a certain amount of money in the overseas designated shops with refund service.
·Which shopping malls can provide refund service?
Shopping malls with “Tax Free” logo can provide refund service. Common tax refund company logos are as followed:
Step 1. Obtain tax refund documents from shopping malls
Tax refund form: After shopping, please ask the store for the refund form, fill in your credit card number and passport information, and then sign your name. Under normal circumstances, the tax refund form is in triplicate form. The first will be kept by merchants, and the other two forms (i.e., customer receipt and the copy of the form) shall be stamped by the customs at the airport before returning to China.
Envelope: Merchants will give customers envelopes with business address for mailing back the stamped tax rebate forms.
Step 2. Sealed by the customs at the airport
Before boarding, please show unopened duty-free goods, tax refund forms, shopping receipts, personal identification documents and other related materials to customs staff. After the customs inspection, tax refund forms will be stamped with customs seal.
Step 3. Tax refund
Tax refund at Refund Counter of overseas airport: If you choose the credit card refund, please fill in the credit card number, return the tax refund forms to the refund company’s counter or put them into mailbox of refund company before boarding. If you choose cash refund, you will receive cash on site (a certain percentage of the refund amount will be charged as fee).
Tips: Please go to the airport earlier for many people will wait in queue for tax refund. This is not applicable to people who are in hurry. If you choose cash, you should pay attention to currency restrictions for possible currency conversion fee.
Tax refund in China after returning from abroad: under this situation, please carry tax refund documents, personal identification documents and other related materials to the tax refund company offices (for example, tax refund company counters at airport, cooperative bank outlets, tax refund company APP, etc., depending on regulations of the tax refund company channels).
In addition, please pay special attention to a situation that may cause unexpected losses: commodity prices whose taxes have been deducted (merchants often use this method to make the goods look cheaper). Therefore, you must carefully ask the clerk whether the goods tax has been included; if not, please remember to follow tax refund procedures (show duty-free goods to the customs, stamp tax refund forms with customs seal and send the tax refund forms to the tax refund company, etc.), otherwise the company has the right to deduct tax payable from your reserved credit card.
