I will buy some items online from Germany but have them sent to a UK address. I will be in the U.K. for a visit and shopping.
Can I claim VAT refund for the German purchase? The retailer will provide the VAT tax refund claim form for the purchase, and has asked me to have the form stamped at U.K. customs when I leave the U.K. I guess UK customs stamp is to ensure I leave the EU with the items that I purchased. Is there any problem with U.K. customs stamping the VAT from not issued by U.K. retailers?
