Taxes & Refunds

Sales tax (VAT) of 18% (10% for food and children's products) is included in the prices of goods and services.

At the time of research a pilot project was in the process of being set up to allow visitors to recover part of the VAT paid on purchases (other than food) of R10,000 or more. The project will involve a limited number of outlets, mainly fashion and luxury brand retailers such as some Bosco stores, TSUM, DLT, Grand Hotel Europe gallery and the Crocus City Mall in Moscow, St Petersburg and Sochi.
