Yes, it's cheaper to buy in Paris France than Hong Kong as a Non-Resident of EU, you are entitled to claim back the 12% tax you pay on your purchases at Louis Vuitton Official Store, or in Galeries Lafayette.
Detaxe : save 12%
How does the tourist tax refund work?
Conditions (subject to government regulations):
-Have your passport attesting that you are a non-resident of the European Union -
- You will then be issued a Tax Refund Form ("bordereau de détaxe") consisting of two sheets to be signed by the retailer and yourself. Please note that the person who made the purchases must be present when the tax refund form is issued.
What to do when exiting the European Union:
- When exiting the European Union, the tax refund form must be validated by European Union Customs within three months of the purchase, at either the airport, train station or border point.
- Before checking your luggage, present the tax form together with your purchases, passport and transportation ticket for inspection by Customs. Failure to present these items will result in cancellation of the forms and a possible fine.
-Upon validation of your form by Customs, if you have selected a cash reimbursement, please proceed to the designated desk in the airport, train station or border point. For all other methods of reimbursement, you must post the pink sheet stamped by Customs within 6 months of the sale in the pre-paid T envelope provided and be sure to keep the other sheet as your customer copy.
