The Republic of Belarus also operates the Tax Free system, operated by the Beltamozhservice Republican unitary enterprise.
Today, more than 500 stores in the country provide an opportunity for foreign citizens to purchase goods through the Tax Free system. VAT is refunded by transferring on a bank card or by cash at the National Airport Minsk.
Since January 2019, a refund of value-added tax in cash has been organized at the republican customs clearance center “Kamenny Log” through the branch of Belarusbank.
It is planned to organize the return of the value-added tax in cash at all republican customs clearance points through branches of Belarusbank in the near future.
The organization of tax refund for purchases through the Tax Free system in cash would reduce the period for payment VAT amounts to foreign citizens.
