  1. Does anyone know how much tax back you get on Hermes purchases in the UK?

    I am trying ti figure out if buying in Paris vs London is better.

    Thank you!
     
  2. Check the global tax refund webpage
     


  3. You get more tax refund in UK than France at Hermes. However, it still works out cheaper in France.
     
  4. This is because a diference price in london compare to paris ?
    How much difference for the price in london compare to paris ? For example for a Birkin 30 in togo ?
     
  5. I will do that but I thought it was up to the individual retailer as of how much tax they give back.
     
  6. Could anyone chime in if they have recently purchased an H item and what percentage they were able to get back?

    I think you get back 12% in France right?
     
  7. 10% back in France.
     
  8. +1
     

  9. no, it's per country. the stores don't make/lose any money with the VAT, so why should they keep it for themselves?
     

  10. I thought it was 12% because it says it online. What happened to the 2 %?
     
  11. I also had 12% in mind :smile:
     
  12. 10% in France, and around 17 or 18% in UK. (the more you spend in UK, the higher refund percentage). However, the retail price in UK is higher. To my experience, buying in France is still cheaper.
