How to receive VAT refunds on goods purchased in Sweden:
- Ask for a Taxfree Cheque in the shop where you are making a purchase. Your goods are then given special stickers
- Prior to departure from Sweden, visit an agency for payment of VAT refunds where you show your goods, have the cheque stamped, which can then be cashed
This does not apply to residents of Norway or for those of you who have purchased food, perfume and cosmetics, alcohol and tobacco.
