TAX FREE LOUNGE

Customers who are resident outside the European Union can request an early refund of the Value-Added Tax ( VAT) on purchases made on the same day over €155 per merchant by simply filling a refund form available at every points of sale in the shopping center.

In our Tax Free Lounge, non-EU residents can present these forms and obtain an instant refund of part of the VAT paid on items purchased in Italy.

To obtain this early VAT refund, please present the following:

Please note:
The maximum advance refund is €999,50. Refunds in excess of this amount may be claimed at the customs desk of the airport at your last port of exit from the EU.
If it is not possible to claim an advance refund with us, you may requested a VAT refund within three months of the day of purchase of the item by having your refund forms stamped at a customs desk as you leave the EU.
