VAT, or Value Added Tax, is an automatic tax levied on goods in European countries. This can be as much as 20 to 30% of an item's net price. Travellers and visitors are, however, able to claim a refund of these fees. Prior to Brexit, British travellers were subject to the same VAT regulations as French residents, but you're now able to have these duties reimbursed.

Wevat offers a convenient, paper-free alternative to the traditional method of claiming back added taxes which required you to ask for, and complete, a form from the merchant for every purchase made. The app streamlines this chain of admin. Now you only need to ask a store for an invoice - addressed to Wevat - snap a quick pic of it and upload to the platform. Done!

Goods and invoices can then be taken to the airport or departure port where you scan an app-generated barcode at the tax refund kiosk. Track your refunds and choose payments in over 50 currencies via credit card, Alipay, and WeChat Pay.
