What is VAT / Sales Tax?


VAT / Sales Tax is already included in the price of your purchase. This VAT / Sales Tax is charged by the Irish Government at 23% of the net price of the goods (equivalent to 18.70% of the gross value). Under the Retail Export Scheme, non EU residents are entitled to claim back their VAT / Sales Tax on goods they export from the EU.
