VAT-free and still get money back
There is no VAT in Jersey and - as well as being VAT-free - you might be able to claim back the island's 5% Goods and Services Tax (GST) when you leave.
The GST Visitor Refund Scheme enables you to claim back the tax if your purchases total more than £300 at participating retailers.
To take advantage of the scheme you must:
- ensure your purchases are more than £300
- that you are leaving the island by scheduled flights
- buy from a participating retailer (your hotel can advise)
You'll need to fill out a refund form at the time of purchase, and then take your goods, receipt and refund form to G4S at Jersey Airport, where the refund form will be stamped with a proof of export.
Once you're home, post the form back to the retailer in the stamped addressed envelope, and they'll send you back your refund, less a small handling fee.
