Tax Free Services

When combined with DCC from Elavon, the Tax Free Shopping Service automatically recognises cardholders who are eligible for international tax refunds and provides your customer with everything they need to reclaim international tax duties on the purchase of goods. 

Tourists are an important part of the market as they spend more on average than domestic customers.  By offering the Tax Free service this means that tourists are:

  • More likely to shop at your store
  • In most cases will spend the saving in the store

How does it work?

At purchase the tourist is issued with a form. They present this form at customs and get it stamped. The tourist returns the form and receives a refund. With an Elavon point-of-sale device, cardholders who are eligible for international tax refunds are automatically recognised and provided with the information needed to reclaim international tax duties on the purchase of goods.

This means that:  

  • All eligible customers are identified thereby increasing customer satisfaction
  • Form filling errors and calculations are eradicated
