VAT in Andorra is the lowest in Europe. Its general rate is 4.5%, being reduced to 1% in goods and services related to health, education, culture, food and rentals, the super-reduced rate of 0% (e.g., hospital services, social assistance, education); the special rate of 2.5% (e.g., certain transports and certain ticket sales); and the increased rate of 9.5% (financial services).
This means that the VAT in Andorra is much smaller than its neighbouring countries, France and Spain, with 20 and 21% respectively.
There are three different ways to return the VAT:
In the first case, the tax refund is produced in full, regardless of the percentage, but you must handle the process himself. Once the purchase has been made, you must request the Tax Free service and obtain the invoice with the Taxes correctly broken down. From here, you will have to go to customs and claim the seal as the products have been introduced in the Principality. Once certified, the final step is to redirect the sealed invoice to the commerce or supplier where the product was acquired and, this one, will have 15 days to return the corresponding amount.
In the second case, the service is faster and more convenient but the amount of money returned is less. This time, the store facilitates the specific Tax Free model that, after receiving the seal, and it can be charged to the Principality through the financial entity Crèdit Andorrà or through any of the various authorized entities (Premier Tax Free, Global Refund, Innova Tax Free, Travel Tax Free, Comercia Global Payments or La Caixa, among others). In this case, you might not receive the full amount of money.
