By submitting your European VAT registration number we will check online your VAT number immediately, so that you can buy TAX Free right away.
All purchases are automatically tax-free once you create a shipping address outside the European Union, and the shipment is made by us.
Are you residing in a country outside the European Union? If so, did you know that you do not need to pay value added tax (VAT) on the goods you buy during your holiday or
business trip to the Netherlands? In most cases you need to pay 21% VAT (turnover tax) on all the goods you purchase in the Netherlands. The terms and conditions for tax free shopping in the Netherlands are as follows:
you reside in a country that is not a member of the European Union
the purchased goods need to be taken home (outside the EU) within three months
the total amount of your purchased goods must be at least €50,- (previously €136,-)
There are two possible procedures in order to retrieve the VAT on your purchased goods from Mocnikova:
If you made a purchase in one of our shops, you received a purchase receipt stating the VAT amount.
You take the receipt(s) of Mocnikova with you to the airport or border. Most people travel from the European Union by plane, but those who do so by car can go to the border
customs in order to get a validation stamp on their receipts. The customs officer will stamp your receipts after checking and confirming that you reside in a country outside the European Union and that you are therefore exporting the purchased goods.
You will then send the stamped receipts of Mocnikova together with a copy of your passport and a letter stating at which address you are residing outside the European Union and
your Dutch bank account details to:
Mocnikova & Zivaci
T.a.v. Financiële Administratie
3123 RB Schiedam
We will then transfer the VAT amount to your bank account or Paypal Account as soon as possible.(minus payment transfer costs)
If you made a purchase in one of our (web) shops, you received a purchase receipt stating the VAT amount.
You need to register your purchased goods on the website www.VATfree.nl. You will subsequently receive an overall invoice from VATfree listing all your purchases.
Since ' VATfree' will provide you with an overall invoice listing all the purchased goods you registered that day, you will be able to retrieve the VAT amount of all your
purchases during your stay in the Netherlands simultaneously. To do so, it is important you kept the receipts of all the shops and you must export your purchases outside the
European Union. This way you will even be able to retrieve VAT on smaller purchases, as long as the total amount of the combined purchases is at least € 50,-.
You then need to take the overall invoice together with all your receipts to the airport or border.
You will go to the border customs or the customs desk at the airport and you will show:
the items you purchased in the Netherlands
the VATfree overall invoice enabling it to be stamped
