How to Calculate UK VAT refund? How Much refund and What Percentage?
Asked by: dtba
I wonder if someone could help. I applied for Cash refund of VAT at Trevelex in Heathrow airport. Two applications from Primark the first was for purchases of GBP 81.50 and the 2nd for purchases of GBP 79.0. All purchases are for adults, Standard 20% VAT (i.e. no children clothes). The refund was as follows: GBP 6.7 and GBP 6.1 respectively. Then a deduction of 2 x 2.7 = 5.4 GBP (for cash payment).
Net amount received was GBP 7.4. I would appreciate explaining that, while I was expecting a refund of 20% in the range of GBP 26 less 5.4.
