I have bought an expensive item; can I claim back the tax?
Unfortunately, no. When the UK officially left EU in January 1, 2021 – many changes took place. Since then, VAT Retail Export Scheme (which allowed to claim back the tax on items that you purchase in the UK but are taking out of the country back to your home nation), have been withdrawn both to EU and non-EU visitors in Britain.
